“I am very honored and privileged to be one of the recipient of this scholarship. Words would not be enough to describe how thankful I am for this helpful support. For some, scholarship may just mean something as simple as an assistance to pay their tuition, however, for many others like myself, it means something much greater. Before the scholarship, I would have to work many during the week to help support my family and myself on top of all my studies. I had no alternative at that point because it was my only source of income for to cover my financial needs. Between my work and studies, I was also trying to to do something positive for my community; however, it has been a constant struggle for me on finding the time get involved. The scholarship has helped me focus much more on my studies and gave me alternative to be actively involved in the community.”
