“Apart from God and my parents, I owe
everything I am and everything I hope to be to school. Without the education I have received during my lifetime, the friends I have met and have networked with, the great teachers that have been there for me since day one, I would not be able to move on to a more positive place in my life. I would not be able to have a chance to even become a pilot, to be given a chance to inspire other children that whatever they dream of, they can actually be. Education has fulfilled me andl am a more positive person because of it” she recounted in a media interview.
She is currently the CEO of an aviation company called EXcel Aviation, with the dream to aid young women like her to fulfil their dreams.
