I’m currently studying Political Science and Global Development with a keen interest in International Relations. Serving the community around me is one of my top priorities. Giving back has always been something I aspire to do and receiving an award for community leadership is a wonderful thank you and gave me encouragement to think of ways I can better serve the community in future. Adequately thanking the donors of my award is impossible, as receiving this gift has completely changed my academic experience. I’m able to focus more on classes and extracurriculars – which are happening virtually during Covid! – and less on working which, also due to Covid, may be taken at any moment. Financial support from donors has truly helped my university journey immensely.
