    The first day I met her, she asked me what I want her to do for me. I told her that I want her to mentor me.
    I really didn’t know what I wanted but, she guide me through the right path and gave me hope for the future. Now, I no longer consider myself her mentee but, her daughter. She look out and care for me. This is practically what she does for her million of mentees, home and abroad.

    She deserve even more.
