Please tell us about yourself, your family and your interests.

My name is Aliyah Minka Anthony. I live on an  island called Dominica. I am 23 years old and I stay with my parents. I have three brothers and my main interest is doing exceptionally well at school.

What drew you to the program you are studying at Athena? Is it living up to your expectations?

I was once a loyal student at Monroe since I did my Bachelor’s and started my Master’s with them. However, my friend who signed up with UniAthena told me about the great prices and programs this educational institution has. So I decided to withdraw from the program I started with Monroe and move to this school.

What would you like to do after completing this course from Athena?

After completing this course, I would like to go for a postgraduate program or obtain another Master’s degree in Project Management.

What do you think makes a great teacher?

Accountability, patience and an open mind make a great teacher.

What’s your dream job?

I would like to become a Financial Controller or a Management Analyst someday.

What is the most courageous thing you have ever done?

The most courageous thing I have done was helping my brother when he had an epilepsy attack by ensuring he did not bite his tongue by placing a nutmeg underneath it because it helps reduce attacks.

What is your best childhood memory?

My best childhood memory was attending primary school. I had wonderful days as an adolescent. We did all types of crazy fun stuff when we were kids.

What is your idea of a perfect vacation?

An idea of a perfect vacation for me is, having enough funds to go to Jamaica to have lots of fun. Visiting various natural sites and hugely enjoying that beautiful country.

Which fictional character (a character from a film, book, TV series, play) would you like to be friends with?

A fictional character I would like to be friends with is Meredith in Grey's Anatomy.

Mention one important lesson you have learned in life that made you what you are today.

An important lesson I have learned is not to give up on your dreams, nothing happens before its time, patience is a virtue and a lot of things occur when you pray.
