Please share what the Bursary program has meant for you so far in your post-secondary journey (Mentorship, financial aid, career assistance).

The Bursary program has been a very huge and welcomed blessing. The financial aid has helped alleviate some of the financial burden on me and my family and has provided security so far in my post-secondary journey. Nor only this, but the mentorship held every two weeks has greatly helped bring me some insight and wisdom into how to be successful in life as a young black woman, and as a person in general.

2023 Academic/Personal Highlight

A personal highlight for 2023 is actually about the M2M program. It is the Youth Lead conferences that have been held. I love that I've gotten the opportunity to network and meet a multitude of different people from all walks of life.
