“My dream was to work in the media. When I graduated high school, all of my family were against me studying in the media. The closer college applications got, the more I was nervous, thinking how I can convince my family. I remember they were all against me except for one of my friends. Only that friend supported me and made me even more determined on my goal, and eventually, my big brother started supporting me as well. One thing that I tell my colleagues is that success does not depend on your position at work, but it depends on your desires and goals, I always say go for what your heart tells you and what you desire. I’m now a senior studying in media, I passed every year being the third of my class, and I work as a reporter. The people who were against me and were telling me that I can’t do it now can see that I can, I can even do more.”
