Each and every one of our recipients got accepted into the school of their dreams on their own merit through hard work, courage, dedication and resilience. This scholarship is to let them know how incredible they are. All it takes is one person to see the potential in someone to inspire a higher ambition. I am very proud of my Thai heritage and the deep culture it embodies. I want these students to remember where they come from so that they can be proud to fully own who they are. It is also important, for true happiness, to honor our community and be mindful to pay it forward where possible.” said Simon.
