I feel truly honoured to be awarded a scholarship for 2014 from the Pinnacle Foundation.
For me to be considered and accepted for the Pinnacle Foundation Scholarship, gave me a sense of feeling worthwhile in the eyes of society. The Scholarship will allow me to access the resources and materials to help me achieve, and the mentor program will give me the guidance and assistance to excel in my field of study.
Without the support from the Pinnacle Foundation, I would have had a difficult time accessing the cost of attending university and in turn this opportunity has boosted my confidence and self-esteem in my abilities.
I have been afforded the chance to make a difference with this scholarship, not only in the lives of people around me but in the community at large; regardless of where my studies take me I know I will have been a leader in the community enacting change and promoting equity.
