Research Beginning in Financial Times

Submission date is due in one week. Sunday turned out to be an intense writing and editing day. Still relaxed. 

Recollecting how it all started, I remember all the details, especially how my proclaimed thesis partner first discovered the award winning contribution to a Financial Times essay competition under the title: "Educating Amaretch". It was written by James Tooley, and was an answer to William Easterly's final question in his book White Man's Burden of how to educate the poorest of the poor. Amaretch was one of the young girls with seemingly no access to education, a girl too typical in so many underdeveloped areas around the world.

James Tooley's essay was breathtaking and eye-opening. It was the beginning of my quest to fulfill a newfound purpose.
