Hi everyone, my name is Chaya, and I’m currently an Upper 6 student of St. Joseph’s Convent PoS trying to raise money to attend my DREAM college, the illustrious Howard University, in August of 2021! As a result of my academic achievements demonstrated, I have been awarded the Capstone Merit Scholarship. However, I have been granted a limited amount of financial aid on account of being an international student, and even with this aid, the tuition, housing and meal plan costs are still steep.
It has been a rough year, and with the COVID-19 Pandemic, came financial hardships/constraints. This meant that to survive, our savings now had to be utilized, and this burden falling on my single mother led to some financial strain. Therefore, at this time, we do not have all the necessary funds available to finance my college journey.
This is where you come in! The scholarship along with this funding, would definitely assist me on the path to fulfill my dream. Similar to this scholarship offer being a reward for hard work and faith, I am asking you to have faith in the knowledge, that your investment in me will not be in vain.
Short backstory, for as long as I can remember, I have been hardworking and dedicated to my education, and in turn my future, which is indicated by my achievements throughout the years. I was never satisfied with surface-level explanations, and never drawn to typical professions. Over the years, through my love for shows like Criminal Minds and NCIS, I developed an affinity for science and mathematics, and in turn found my passion. Forensic Pathology. An uncommon profession, but one of the most interesting and compelling, in my opinion.
Over time, while searching for universities that would help propel my dream of becoming a Forensic Pathologist, Howard University’s distinction as a pillar of not just excellence, but specifically black excellence, attracted me. Apart from its reputation and notable alumni produced, the university’s environment will allow me a safe space to develop and learn around like-minded people with similar backgrounds, who are not only passionate about effecting change in their communities, but throughout the world.
Naturally, as the determined and unrelenting young woman I was raised to be, I set my sights on becoming a Bison. Years of hard-work, sacrifice, and sleepless nights; balancing academics, sports, extra-curricular and community involvement both in and out of school, all the while maintaining a healthy social life.
FINALLY, the reward, my dream school! And although due to the pandemic this achievement seems bittersweet, I could not be anymore grateful to everyone that has contributed to my success in anyway.
All in all, I am asking your assistance so I can represent Trinidad and Tobago to the best of my ability and reach my fullest potential at the college of my dreams. No amount is too small, and remember, “It takes a village!”
