What does empowerment mean to you?

The process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling my own life and claiming my rights.

Do you have a role model who inspires you and why?

My grandmother is my role model because she made me the person I am today. She gave me a lot of reasons to be me and share whatever belongs to my success. She is a very strong woman and believes in getting things done right and at its time.

What do you like about Kiron?/What does Kiron mean to you?

I like the mentoring services and their efforts to empower women in higher education. Kiron means a lot to me, for it has helped me advance in my career and educational development.

What do you want to achieve with Kiron/what are your learning goals?

I want to finish my course on political science with Kiron and be able to transfer to an offline university. My learning goal is to get a degree in the area of my interest, political science.

What challenges are you facing?

My challenge is time management. I mean, balancing my career with online studies. Sometimes I also find it very difficult to follow the course due to technical problems. I need support, probably from a lecturer who will support me along, at least once a week.

What are your plans for the future?

I am looking forward to obtaining a bachelor’s degree in political science and to having my own online media platform where I can give voice to women and empower them to reach the next level in their careers. These are my plans for the next five years.
