There are few characters in life who leave a resounding impression on your resolve towards school or career. Carolina definitely holds that in mine. I was a student of Carolina’s while doing my MSc in Finance at the University. Her commitment to raising the bar for us students set her apart from other lecturers and showed the difference between being passionate and merely being responsible for. Until today, I still envisage her as that tremendous force in front of the lecture room teaching and coaching us to reach beyond our academic constraints and barriers. A true presence.
