"Education helped me to break barriers and remains as an important part of my career and passion. Without the encouragements, challenges, and inspirations by all the enlightened and courageous teachers I have so fortunately encountered, I would have never arrived at the place I find myself now. The mission of The Global Teacher Prize is critical to our future generations, thus it is an honour to support."
