Pamela Orogot is the 2nd Prize Winner of the BN Poetry Award. Pamela was born twenty five years ago in Kampala, Uganda to a large family mainly comprised of women, a reason why humanity and women of all walks are her muse. She is a Lawyer by profession (a graduate from Makerere University Kampala and the Law Development Center) in Uganda, a writer at heart and at a re-known media house in Uganda where she doubles as a Legal adviser.
She cannot recall when she started writing stories, articles or making attempts to rewrite the endings of novels but knows her love for writing poetry started in Secondary school when poetry lessons were first introduced to her and has grown to be one of her major forms of communication on life issues.
In 2005, while in secondary school, she wrote a musical play entitled “Feminia” that revolved around a kingdom where woman and everything female were considered supreme. The play was used in her school for the Senior Year Five production bonanza.
In June 2013, she emerged second in the annual BN Poetry awards in Kampala for her poem ‘A Face like Mine’.
