I am thankful that this scholarship provides such a valuable opportunity for students in developing countries, like myself, to pursue higher education in Canada’s world-class educational system. I am deeply impressed by the commitment of the University of Victoria and the Canadian educational system in general which collectively work to encourage community engagement, support community development, and improve the quality of people’s lives and natural resources, both throughout Canada and other regions in the world. I hope that, one day, I will be able to give back to my own community as well as to the global community at large.
