“The First Lady” Cecilia Braekhus recently visited Uganda, Africa, for the opening of a school that will be named “The First Lady Primary School,” an educational site that will be located on the outskirts of the African capital.

To make this achievement possible, Braekhus worked hard for three years in partnership with the organization ‘Bring Children From Streets”, a Norwegian-Ugandan group led by Richard Kiwanuka.

After the ceremonial act, the number one female boxer pound for pound in the world gave statements, and this was what Braekhus said: “This school is a dream come true, to contribute to the education of young people to be future professionals is priceless.”

“When I return home, I will leave part of myself with these children and I hope to return to continue supporting them,” added the champion.

Braekhus (35-0, 9 KO’s) closed the season with a unanimous decision win over Aleksandra Madgziak-Lopes in defense of the female welterweight title of the World Boxing Association (WBA).
