Recipient of the Rosemary Sadlier Black Legends Bursary: XAVIA




York 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)

All of the support from The bursary program allowed me to be more confident as a person which led to better grades and decision making for myself. Besides the financial assistance I am incredibly grateful for the people at the foundation as they provided me with a space where I can discuss anything I need. I truly see them as family and can’t wait for future events!

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

I had the pleasure of meeting with Rosemary Sadlier at the Youth Lead Conference event. She is truly a power figure in the black community and listening to her speak was empowering. I am lucky to have met such an influential black Canadian!
