Study Objectives:
My two-year experience as a low income private school teacher grounded me to the micro realities of our education system and the interconnectedness of various solution areas on the macro jig-saw puzzle. I wish to academically further this deep personal community experience through a Master's program in Public Administration in the United States. I hope to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and develop the mindset for effective administration of development policies, programs and projects. The Master's program will enable me be to be a development economics practitioner with a strong drive for socio-economic progress, accountability to people, and with a positive, persuasive and innovative approach to problem solving.
