“I lost my dad in 2002, it’s been hard for me since then. I struggled to make it into school and now my motto is simple: “School lasts 4 years, after that, you can do what you want.”
“That’s why I’m super focused. I’m trying my best to graduate with the best grade I can. Another thing that drives me is my hatred for ignorance. I read everything, on every topic. I don’t care if it’s not related to what I’m studying, I’ll read it. Because I hate being left out of conversations and I believe knowledge is key to solving every problem.”
“So people might not understand why I’m so ‘serious’ but I have so much to prove and I hope I do.”
