WHAT IMPACT HAS THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM HAD ON YOUR LIFE?
The program has changed my life. It gives me an opportunity to continue my university studies. It has helped me develop a strong relationship and engage with my community.
WHAT IMPACT HAS THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM HAD ON YOUR COMMUNITY?
Thanks to the scholarship program, there are many professionals in my community, that’s why I decided to apply to the program. Thanks to St. Sabina, CIS and ARDM, I am a scholarship recipient.
WHAT HAVE BEEN YOUR GREATEST OBSTACLES IN ORDER TO CONTINUE YOUR EDUCATION?
During this pandemic it has been very hard to continue my studies virtually, as the internet signal is very slow and sometimes I don’t understand my classes. I rather prefer in person classes.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AFTER GRADUATING FROM HIGH SCHOOL OR UNIVERSITY?
Personally, I want to share my knowledge with other in my community. One of my goals is also to get a job.
