Christopher Ategeka lost both parents to AIDS by the age of seven. He went on to raise his four younger siblings in Uganda, before generous donations brought him to California, where he graduated from UC Berkeley and gave his engineering department's commencement speech. Today, he runs two nonprofits, one that provides bikes to rural Ugandans. Ategeka joins us as part of our "First Person" series on the people who make the Bay Area unique.
