Letter from Scholar

I am honoured to have been part of Fobzu’s Scholarship Programme and thank both Fobzu and my sponsor for their generous support. Because of them, I was given a chance of further education.

Being one of 6 sisters and brothers, my family could not afford to send me to university. I therefore had to work very hard through high school to get an accumulative average that would eventually allow me to qualify for a scholarship. I earned a 94.6 average but I was still afraid that I would not be able to go to university. I came alive when I was informed that the scholarship I was getting was through Fobzu.

I have just finished my undergraduate degree at Birzeit University. My plans at this stage include completing a Masters in Computer System Engineering at Birzeit University itself. I hope to be able to serve in a more professional and beneficial way in my community in the future when I will have more ability to help those less fortunate and under-represented.
