Why I Chose TCU:

I chose TCU for a plethora of reasons. I wanted the low student-to-faculty ratio, the opportunity to use what I would learn in class and apply it on a global scale in their study abroad programs, and the residential life at TCU. Furthermore, as an international student coming into a foreign country, being comfortable is high on my list of priorities. Most of all, I chose TCU because of its deliberation and interest in community engagement. It reminds me of the word ‘Ubuntu,’ which means that one has the qualities of essential human virtues like compassion and humility, where one cannot be without another person.

Plans After Graduation:

What I plan to study at TCU is very in line with a problem I have identified in my country, and I plan to pursue as a career. With an ongoing problem of record-keeping and data collection, I plan to introduce an analytical company that can serve both government and corporate companies in solving this problem. In addition, I plan to turn my hobby, crocheting and knitting clothes, into a source of income.
