Story of Aruzhan Toleubay
When Kazakhstan native Aruzhan Toleubay was fourteen, she dreamed of studying in the United States. Her protective parents gently said no. But Aruzhan’s heart kept beating yes, yes, yes! “I would sit on my bed and say over and over again: I’m thankful that I am studying in the United States. So, I was grateful for something that I did not yet have, but I manifested it by focusing on it,” Aruzhan recalls.
