How do you feel about having a scholarship?

I feel blessed to be one of the youths in our community with a scholarship.

It was very hard for me because my family doesn’t have the funds to be able to support me

How and in what [ways] has your life changed because of having a scholarship?

My life has changed greatly because [before] I didn’t have the funds. I thought, well, I think I won’t continue studying, but with the scholarship I have continued, thanks to God, and I feel very happy.
