Zalika holds a Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) from Yumbe Town View College, obtained in 2014. After Senior Four, there were no opportunities to further her studies due to financial challenges.

Zalika’s ambition is to become a nurse. She speaks Aringa, Kakwa, Lugbara, Kiswahili, and English.
