Recipient of the Portia White Black Legends Bursary: AUDREY




Tyndale University

Field of Study/ Major


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

This bursary has meant a lot to me. The mentorship provided by the foundation has helped me not go through life's struggles alone. They are willing to listen and support the youth in any way they can. I have appreciated having them in my life. Also, the opportunity to go to university and have it covered is a major for me. I am super grateful.

⁠Any comments you would like to share about being matched with the Black Legend that your September 2023 Bursary was named after

The story of Portia White is truly inspirational. She was the first Canadian of Arfrican descent to beccome a world renowned Opera singer even getting to sing for the Queen Elizabeth and prince William. I am inspired by how she used her gift and also had career success as a teacher of Music in Toronto.
