“Thank you so much for your support. Your gift shows me that dedication and hard work is appreciated and rewarded, and it has aided in giving me the unique opportunity to complete a semester of my studies in Oslo, Norway. I have obtained so many valuable experiences living in such a unique country and culture all while continuing my studies in a dual degree in Geomatics Engineering and Astrophysics. Awards such as this have helped me enormously towards achieving these goals and thus I am unendingly grateful.”
