Even after SHS I literally had an argument with my parents to allow me to do some work and earn my own money.
When asked what piece of advice she has for young graduates, Priscilla said:
"Value whatever opportunities come your way. All of this started when I was sent a link by my lecturer and I decided to apply. You may never know what will come out of what's right in front of you.
