Amongst my sisters, I am the only one to receive a college education since they all got married at a young age. However, marriage was not my goal. I chose to spend my time pursuing my education. I graduated high school with a distinction and received a distinction in college as well. Despite these extraordinary recognitions, the happiest moment was when I received the news that Reach Education Fund would grant me a scholarship for my Master’s degree in Management.
