" Growing up in a poor and dangerous community doesn't give you many options to consider. I had always thought that studying gave you opportunities, but it was not until I got access to a high-quality education that I understood the veritable value it has in changing people's lives. It impacted me and encouraged me to develop my life to its fullest potential and to help others. It is my intention to help people reach their potential and become aware of the opportunities that education offers. "
