In Switzerland, she worked as an Academic Mentor who supported freshmen from Norway, Germany, and Italy. She graduated a semester early, with honors and also had four admissions to world-renowned universities for her graduate studies. Her experience is used to show others how to get into university, and graduate successfully.
