I was a student in SRS from 2000 to 2011. It was like home for me. Not only did I learn how to succeed in life academically, I learnt to be proud of who I am. SRS instilled important values in me, teaching me honesty, the importance of community, and empathy. After spending 4 years in the UK earning my Bachelors and Masters degrees, I returned to SRS to give back to the community that motivated me to be who I am.
