BRACKETTS LANDING FOUNDATION
I received scholarship from Brackett Foundation as part of a supplementary grant for my study betweeen 2004 and 2007. The scholarship from Brackett was essential for starting and completing my degree at an international college in Thailand. After graduation, I came back to my camp and started teaching at a post-ten school where I was asked to teach Social Studies, which is my subject of interest, and English. After a few months of teaching, I began to realize the benefit I received from my study at the university. Because I was exposed to the outside world, I think I was able to introduce a method of teaching which is different from the one the students are used to , which is reciting. The benefit of the Scholarship for Brackett is, I think, that I could share the knowledge that I have learned to my fellow refugee students, many of who are really bright. I can also see that some of my students believe that they can do like their teacher, me, who is not bright at all. Personally, receving university education is self-satisfying, and it also boosts my confidence and provide me a sense of freedom amid living in an enclosed refugee camp. As soon as I started teaching, I also realized that I still need to learn more in order to help educate my fellow refugees; thus, further education is necessary. Therefore, I believe that scholarship program like Brackett Foundation is paramont for people like me and prospective students to fulfill their dream and that of their community.
