I met Ma’am Flora when I was a very confused and naive 17 year old. I didn’t know much about the world but I did have big dreams, and that is what Ma’am Flora saw in me. She took me under her wing, along with many other students who shared similar aspirations of studying at the best institutes of the world, and guided me the best that she could. After countless hours and lots of hard work from both of us, I secured a place at Vanderbilt University, a top 15 institute in the US with a 100% scholarship. Over the last four years, I have grown in ways and learned things unfathomable to the 17 year old. Though looking back now, I feel like I still didn’t know anything about what I wanted and how to get there, I know that Ma’am Flora’s dedication and help were priceless and invaluable in getting me from there to here.
I now own a bachelors degree in Biomedical Engineering with a Summa Cum Laude distinction, and will be working at McKinsey & Company this fall. I hope to always keep learning and growing, so that I can always look back and witness growth similar to what I see looking back now, and pray for the right guidance at the right time, similar to what Ma’am Flora was for me in the most vulnerable year of my life. More importantly, I hope to always kick ass as a woman who is fierce, strong, independent, and relentless – which is exactly how I see her!
