According to her, she had many discouragements going back to nursing school after her BSc in Pharmacology and Masters in Public Health.

“I had so many discouragements and just a few encouragements,” she said.

She expressed gratitude to God for her accomplishments and prayed that her story will serve as motivation for other young women who have lofty ambitions despite the fact that they may appear improbable.

“Growing up, I never witnessed what great success was; still, I dared to dream big,” she wrote.
