Alumni story

I remember speaking to some other students on the programme about how, due to our personal circumstances and the obstacles facing us, none of us had really ‘dared to dream’ before, or allowed ourselves to even dream of an opportunity like studying in the US. For me, getting into the programme challenged this mindset; it came by surprise, and was followed by excitement, determination and hard work.
