Some simple, but good advice she offers her students is: "Your dissertation should be about some personal experience or hurdle you went through, what were the pain points? What did you gain from the experience? What solution could you find or can think about to overcome the hurdles?"

Personal advice: “Do what you love, love what you do!”

Her motto is: Battling all obstacles to achieving my dream and gathering aspirations to make it happen. I am always focus on my goals and dreams, and the Lord is always with me to guide me through the obstacle!
