Unfortunately, growing up, there was not any saved money for university for my sisters and I. I knew that I had to start saving as soon as I was able to work. The financial assistance of this scholarship will allow me to complete my first year without any student loan debt.  

My goals and aspirations are to obtain as much knowledge from my program at Wilfrid Laurier University. I will be doing a 5-year double degree at the university in computer science and business administration. I also look forward to my third-year co-op at the university, which I hope takes place at either a computer science or business company. Ultimately, I aim to find a career I love in which I can continually grow, cultivate my skills, and help others.
