My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
I am Sylvester Nartey, a first year BSc. Biological Science student in the University of Ghana, Legon (Accra).
As the second born of four boys in my family, my father has been out of employment my entire adult life. This left me and my other siblings to be solely cared for by our mother who has had to resort soliciting financial support from other family members to be added to her meagre income to see us through our education. The beginning of the academic year was very traumatic in my home because of financial challenges. I had to manage the very little resources that was provided and risk extending the days I had to go without food.
The above challenges notwithstanding, I have remained very focused and determined to make a difference in my family. In my misery and stressful moments, I have learned to make books my best companion. An attitude that have brought me some comfort, materially and emotionally. But all these are a thing of the past due to the comprehensive scholarship that EPI has awarded me.
As an Educational Pathways International scholarship recipient, I am very grateful for the generosity of Educational Pathways International. The Educational Pathways International has taken away the financial burden of me and that of my family which has allowed me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. This financial support has allowed me to focus on my academic pursuits. EPI has helped me to be able to achieve the grades necessary to fulfil my professional ambition of becoming a Medical Doctor. The Educational Pathways International also has remarkable programs that they take us through us beneficiaries.
My dream is to become a Medical Doctor in the future. I currently study Biological Science and my plan is to study Biochemistry Cell and Molecular Biology in my second year. I chose this programme because it will provide me with more knowledge and skills before I enter medical school at the postgraduate level. Also, all medications prescribed by Doctors are based on biochemical examinations. My future profession as a Medical Doctor will ensure that I make important contributions to Ghana’s development. Many people die of diseases and as a Medical Doctor I will conduct research to minimize and eradicate them. This will help maintain and restore the health conditions of the citizens in Ghana.
I am very appreciative to Educational Pathways International for their support. This generosity has turned my dreams into a reality. I cannot emphasize the financial relief that Educational Pathways International Scholarship has made my life.
