“The importance of education has been ingrained in me from a very young age. I witnessed firsthand how my parents’ sacrifices and perseverance paved the way for a better life. As a result, I also strive for academic success so that I will one day be able to repay them for their efforts. I, however, have never seen success, in whatever endeavor, a burden. I instead saw it as a pathway to a better life that satiates my genuine curiosity.”
