However, Rose-Mary did not have it easy attaining her PhD. In a Facebook post, she recounts how she had to combine studying abroad for her Master’s Degree and then later her PhD, while taking care of her children and managing her home.

For that, she is grateful to God and her family to the support.

“It has not been easy but God has been faithful. I am very grateful to my family and loved ones for encouraging me to go this far. We made history together!” she said.

“For me, the most important is to hold the door for many ladies to pass through!… Computer Science is largely a male-dominated field but we are changing the narrative! So don’t give up, push harder and you will see the light at the end of the tunnel,” she stated.
