"I am most optimistic about all the opportunities that I have had, and that I keep having. I have been really lucky to have a great childhood with wonderful parents, siblings, friends and the opportunity to travel. All this has given me a great perspective on life, and the world. I am sure that my future lies within helping people around the world with getting an education. I am convinced that with all these great opportunities I’ve had, I have to put them into good use, and the good use is to give other people opportunities to help other people. It’s sort of a ‘pay it forward’ kind of thing I have going on.
Besides losing everyone I love, one of my biggest fears is to lose my humbleness, empathy, optimism and my hunger for learning and exploring new things. I believe that life is not fully completed if you haven’t pushed yourself to be the best version of yourself, that you can be."- Patricia
