For the longest time, we have liked to invest in fields that lie within our comfort zones but I guess that is changing for many young people as they are taking leaps of faith to venture out in risky and complex markets. Sydney also commonly known as Russian, took a firm stride into financial and capital markets, a field that is slowly becoming familiar to young people as we have seen these in the movies we watch.
“The concept behind Blutbad Capital began in my Freshman year at University. That was in 2015, my Engineering Maths professor, Gromov Nikolay Alexandervich, had mentored several of his students who went on to become great Investment bankers. One day he decided to Lecture us about his proprietary which he had designed based on certain data statistical analysis to help him trade capital and Financial markets. That’s the day I fell in love with the Markets.” Sydney explained when asked how he started out.
He went on to say that what really inspired him to start was the way his Professor made something so complex, look so simple and do-able by an average human being. One of his favorite quotes that says “A journey of 1000 miles begins with only 1 step” is what keeps him going each time he starts to second guess his hustle. However, Sydney is determined to push on until he gets to his destination.
One of the major challenges he has faced in this industry is “Marketeers playground”
“Our kind of business is filled with over 95% marketeers who honestly have no idea what they are saying but take advantage of the public’s unawareness about these markets and prey on them with dubious promises which are backed up by Ponzi schemes. BLUTBAD CAPITAL wants to bridge that gap and sensitize each and every one about the financial and Capital markets. That’s why we started our TRADER’S ACADEMY.” He explained
One of his biggest sacrifices has been setting sleep free. “It has a big effect on my health ofcourse, but if I want to compete on a global basis, then I ought to be at pace with other traders.”
Aside stock trading, Sydney’s relentless hobby is to get fat; as he calls it. He also has a very unique talent called pareidolia. It’s a form of apophenia, which is a more general term for the human tendency to seek patterns in random data. Byebyo!!

Like the common question it has become, are millennials slowly moving away from practicing what they studied and tending towards letting their passions bake their cakes? Joshua Mulwana commonly known as Pirate Mulwana, a recent graduate of Electrical Engineering from Makerere University is one of this kind.
His love for social media and communications has over the years made him a Twitter darling and one of the top influencers in Uganda. This budding career path has many young people joining and surviving off it but some have mastered the professionalism and craft it requires to pull it off as a reliable digital marketer. Case in point, Joshua Mulwana.
“But does this social media thing pay off?” Some people from Gen X will ask but Pirate Mulwana is one of the few influencers who have tangible things to show for it. Recently he expressed his gratitude towards his hard work for earning him a car which he bought with money ONLY made from influencing.
“Practicing electrical engineering is not my priority now and honestly not any time soon. I eat and breath digital marketing.” Joshua said when asked if he will ever practice engineering.
Like the man of many talents he is, he surprised his twitter followers when he uploaded a video of himself doing a cover to Ed Sheeran’s perfect- with his saxophone.
“My mum gifted me with a sax because she knew how much I loved music. I took it upon myself to learn the sax from YouTube tutorials and later enrolled into a music school. I have started doing small gigs with my sax and it’s one of the most fulfilling things ever.” Joshua said.
If anyone is focused on their passions in this generation, Pirate Mulwana is one of them. We wish him all the best in his endeavors. One question remains though, Can social media be enjoyed without the most reliable data bundles? Don’t be left out. Dial *157# to enjoy pulse bundles.

Angella Atukwase aka Tush is a 23 year old pulser who has decided to do fashion because it’s been a dream of hers since childhood. Growing up, girls usually mentioned that they wanted to become fashion designers but that dream was washed away by the so many things we wish to become at every new step of our lives.
Unlike many other girls, Tush is living her dream as a fashion designer; right from the way she dresses, to her lifestyle. It is not shocking that the young fashionista is working to become the next Slyvia Owori in Uganda.
Tush is one of the proprietors of G & A Wear, a fashion brand that she started in her 2nd year of campus with a friend. The business started off as an online business for African print off shoulder tops and dresses however, it has now grown to having a physical location at Mukisa Arcade. Because of her love for fashion, Tush studied a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial and fine art at Makerere University.
Aside from fashion, she is a humanitarian working with a number of charitable organisations to give back to disadvantaged families. She is currently working with a non-profitable organisation called iExperience that reaches out to children and mothers offering them help and mentorship in different areas to enable them have a fairly sustainable standard of living.
Tush is a beautiful, brilliant and ambitious lady. It comes as no shock that she has a following of 14.3k followers on Instagram. People clearly love the content that she posts which includes some of the designs from her fashion brand. In the next couple of years, we hope to see G&A Wear become a household brand making more customized outfits for more Ugandans.

For those in relationships, this week has started with anxiety of what Friday will hold. You don’t know whether you get your partner an extravagant gift or something simple because you also don’t know what you will receive. However, aside from the anxiety, at MTN pulse we thought it wise to educate you on some of the things that make the day like the colors.
Red is the color of love- even the red heart on whatsapp explodes when you send it because red is not like any other color. It is the symbol of romance and also shows that someone is in love. When someone wears red on Valentines day, it is to say that they’re taken and in love.
Black in general is associated with bad news or grief. On Valentine’s Day, black goes to show that you’re alone, rejected or open to proposals from other people. Because the day is all about love, the color black is worn for those who are single to also get a chance at love.
These 2 colors are however worn together because they blend well with each other. Since they’ve traditionally been known as the colors for Valentine’s day, fashion has evolved to mix them together to keep them as the color themes for the day. You can buy yourself some black and red themed gifts on the Jumia app and enjoy a discount if you are on the pulse by dialing *157#.
