Growing up in Uganda, Africa, snowboarding was nowhere near Brolin Mawejje’s mind. He saw snow for the first time at age 12, in Lincoln, Massachusetts on his trek to the states to find his mother. Three years later is when he picked up the board for the first time, in an effort to fit in. Now, his Brolin’s life is shaped by it. At the age of 24, Brolin is a graduate of Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. He’s chosen to put medical school plans on hold he pursues his dream of becoming the first Uganda to compete in the 2018 winter Olympics.
