Who are you choosing?

A person who believes that education is key for our development because that will determine our future and will help us to achieve our dreams. For this reason, we should all be working together to create the environment needed to make that to happen.

I also believe that we all here for a reason, to progress and become better humans beings. Therefore, this should not be taken away due to our different circumstances. For that reason, all the efforts need to be focused on everybody capability of developing themselves and become supermen and superwomen (and supper other genders) despite, you are a parent, international student, suffer any disability, you are from a minor ethnic group or just like pizza with pineapple.
