My Greatest Supporters

I am grateful to my Professor's for the knowledge they bestowed upon me and my family for providing me the environment conducive to excel in my academics.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

As an international student, nothing beats the mix of excitement and confusion experienced during the first few days of school. Everything from burning the midnight oil before the finals, turning in the assignments minutes before the deadline, prepping for the career fair and so much more will be a part of my memories at St.Mary's forever...

My Next Chapter

I started full-time work at Shoe Palace as an Accountant in March and plan to take the CPA test soon. Fingers crossed!!
