She attended local high school and supplemented her learning of foreign languages through private instructions, which were a gift from a local language learning agency. She would like to master her English language skills, which is why she chose English Language and Literature as her major.

She desires to graduate, find employment and give back to her extended family who supported her since her early childhood.
