How could you have secured such generous scholarships?

For many U.S. universities and others worldwide, they emphasize your personality and passion.

Beyond academics, we won entrepreneurial competitions, including the Model Entrepreneur Competition hosted by Columbia University and the Genius Olympiad hosted by Rochester University.

Through these competitions, we enhanced our skills in public speaking, crucial for business competitions. Additionally, we received feedback from professional judges.

Additionally, we manage social media focused on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), We are also engaged in various activities, including fencing, internships, vlogging, and contributing to community events like the Santa 5K and the Terry Fox run.

Having a twin sister is truly special! It provides a significant advantage, facilitating a quicker integration into CIC with family members around.
