"I want to note that you helped a countryside girl from a third world country be a scientist, engineer, traveler, singer, painter, doctor, and an architect today - all at the same time.

I am slowly sketching my dreams again and it surely involves going back to my roots to discover new ways of dealing with data and sharing this with ambitious minds like me who aspires for more, all the time. I will be there to remind them that to aspire is the first step, and plenty of opportunities and help come to those who do." --– Faye Beatriz Tumaliuan '18, Future of Big Data scholarship recipient
