She wrote on Linkedin: “A year ago, I started my LLM Human Rights programme at The University of Edinburgh quite unsure of my place. I felt overwhelmed by a system so different from what I was used to and questioned my abilities.

“Yesterday, I graduated with a distinction! Next week, I will be concluding my research role with Together (Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights) – a job I started while writing my dissertation and starting a new position with Business & Human Rights Resource Centre.

“In all these, I think of my childhood, how these feats were beyond my imagination and feel thankful. Now, I am here and awaiting more to come.”

She thanked the Mastercard Foundation for granting her the rare opportunity to study in the United Kingdom, she also thanked her University Professors who helped her through her academic journey at the University of Edinburgh Law School.

“I am grateful for a lot of reasons – for the opportunity Mastercard Foundation Scholars Programme at the University of Edinburgh gave me, for my professors at University of Edinburgh Law School who helped me see the greatness within, for the Mastercard scholars in my cohort who became family, for those who supported even without knowing it, for my family who remind me of how far I have come, and for myself for daring to dream and believe,” she stated.
