Far From Home: Part 1 - A Ugandan's Olympic Journey

What do snowboarding, medical school, and Uganda have in common? The answer is Brolin Mawejje. A mere 21 years old, Brolin has endured more hardship than most individuals will in a lifetime. Beginning his life in Kampala, Uganda, Brolin lived with a single father and seven siblings. He was forced to learn very early on how to take care of himself, as his culture and family provided very few opportunities.

Through snowboarding, Brolin found an outlet for his anger. He developed a second family on the mountains, a family who constantly pushed him to overcome his fears. He had finally found the guidance and opportunity he was searching for.
