“I don’t know what is worse, a child lost in a fight or all the fight lost in a child. When I first came to Roots, I was an ordinary student with a very narrow gaze. I was focused on very limited options and thriving to maintain the status quo in life. It was undoubtedly my first interaction with Flora Mahmood that led to open doors of ambition within my well-fortified castle. For the first time in life I felt that I could achieve more, I could actually nurture the dream of doing something big in life. It was her sheer motivation and dedication that actually pushed me to be a part of a bigger community. I still remember her calling out to me in the hallways that I had to visit her office for college applications. She would actually run after students, schedule appointments, emails, orientations and what not just for the sake that her students don’t miss out on the application process and the deadlines. What absolutely seized to amaze me was how she created unimaginable opportunities for students who had absolutely no hope. She actually helped me revive that fight in myself. The amount of dedication, hard work and drive in this woman is invincible.
I can proudly say today that Ma’am Flora had a very significant part in the realization of my potential and the chase for my dreams.”
