How was the Scholarship process?

The Scholarship application was very simple easy and quick. The judges were a delight to present in front of, they made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and there is so much you can learn from them.

I enjoyed the training and all the help provided prior to the presentation, it was very valuable and enjoyable experience. I also loved the interaction I got from the judges.

Do you have any advice for future applicants?

I think applicants should cherish the experience, there is nothing to lose. However, so much to gain and learn throughout the process. The Scholarship pays for the entire degree, it is an opportunity that should not be missed.

So, how is University going?

Going to uni was the best decision I made, I enjoy uni life, the atmosphere, the experience, the interaction with other students, team building, my tutors, different societies. It’s just a whole new experience in itself, I am so pleased that I made this choice.

Sounds like you’re having a great time! Any plans on the future?

After I finish my degree, I would like to start work and put everything I have learnt into the practical world and start piecing the jigsaw together.

Lastly Asima goes on to say to future applicants ‘STEM career paths give us immense opportunities in the developing world, who knows where this Scholarship and degree will take me, and of course yourself’.
