I was a TIEP student in the Fall '93 and Spring of '94. I barely spoke any English when I started the program. But by the time I left TIEP I was well prepared to attend college (Economics and MBA) and pursue my successful professional career.

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Who knows the name of the person who said it? It’s Lao Tzu, a very famous Chinese philosopher. This proverb is very important to me not because I can trace it back to my own first steps, but because I can remember the great times we had while I was taking these steps.

TIEP gave me several wonderful experiences, understanding, skills, judgment, practice, anecdotes, that I will remember all my life... TIEP helped me to discover my potential... After my time at TIEP, I am stronger and confident to continue my goals.
