Sanidad will be graduating next year (March 12, 2022) with the Oxford degree and award. 

In her interview with local new Interaksyon, Sanidad told to those dreaming of studying at Oxford University to give their best in the application process. 

“Think of Oxford as just any other university abroad. Considering it as an unreachable university won’t help you get there. However, that doesn’t mean working less towards getting there. Learn to always give your best in every endeavor you take, because only with giving your best could you get the best reward,” Sanidad said.
