She however happily announced that after thinking she was not enough for graduate school, she was proven wrong after gaining admissions at one of the best universities in North West London known as Edge Hill University.
In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, Hallord shared the reason why she never stopped applying to schools;
"I feel schooling abroad would give me a wider perspective of the knowledge I would like to acquire and also, open doors for international networking and other opportunities. I also wanted to have a different learning experience in the Western World. This is why I never gave up bearing in mind that WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT, THE LORD WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN", she said
Hectoria said she will be pursuing a master's degree in Public Health Nutrition with a Commonwealth scholarship.
"Today, I stand here as a graduate student of one of the best universities in the North West of England; Edge Hill University studying Msc. Public Health Nutrition. I am here to tell you; don’t give up on yourself. Keep pushing. When the time is right, the Lord will make it happen. Thank you Commonwealth Scholarship Commission in the UK and Edge Hill University for this life changing opportunity"
