In a life filled with adversity, God was always in control. For the past year I have faced several obstacles that served to hinder my pursuit of a higher education. The journey has been difficult, but God has never led me astray; I believe that He indeed has a plan for my life. His favour has manifested in my life in the form of a collegial scholarship granted by Abaco Pathfinders.
Upon my entry into East Central University, I was haunted by the thought that I would not be able to attain my engineering degree. Due to a lack of proper funding, failure was a possibility within my realty. But I maintained faith in the Almighty.
In Spring of 2015, I applied to the Abaco Pathfinders hoping that they would be able to assist me. After about two months I received news of my scholarship’s approval.
I was ecstatic, and thankful to God for the blessing.
This was only the beginning; thanks to Pathfinders I was able to attain another scholarship with the Prime Time Foundation. My tuition for Fall 2015 is now paid in full.
I am truly thankful for the opportunity that these scholarships have provided me. Special thanks to Abaco Pathfinders for helping me on my path to success. I plan to continue my academic pursuit towards and engineering degree so that I may help propel The Bahamas to its next level.
I believe I can excel, because God guides my path.
