My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
My name is Rayina Barkumu Yakubu a second year student of the University for Development Studies, Ghana and a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) studying Medicine.
Becoming an EPI beneficiary in the year 2018 was one the best things that happened to me in my life. EPI ensures me that as long as I continue to produce good grades and work hard, I will continue to enjoy the full scholarship that has been awarded to me for the six years duration of my programme. Coming from a financially weak background this was a huge relief and blessing to both me and my family. Since I was offered this wonderful opportunity, I no longer have to worry about working outside school to help my family pay for my education. I study in comfort and this has helped me be a better student.
EPI is not just a scholarship program but a family that provides a sense of security, moral and educational support. Extra-curriculum activities are taught to us the beneficiaries to make us better students and help us in the future.
Medicine has always been an area of interest to me since I was a little girl. My passion for medicine is derived from the fact that I like to help people in every little possible way I can and what better way to do so than to help save the lives of people. I admire Doctors for their hardworking nature, courage and dedication to help the citizens of their nation. Sound minds and physically fit bodies are needed for productivity in every nation. What better way to help make this possible than to be able to medically advise, diagnose and treat people who need medical assistance.
After graduation, I would like to further as a Pediatrician to help the sick and deprived children in the rural parts of my country. I like to assist in every way that I can and will join organizations that are aimed at children’s health and welfare like the Pediatric Society of Ghana. I will also be a very active member of the EPI Alumni and help in cash or kind or anyway possible to help to support the organization and hence needy students like me in the country.
Words are not enough to express my gratitude to EPI for this once in a life time wonderful opportunity that I have been given. I promise to work hard to make myself a better individual and student for my family, community and for myself and the nation at large. God bless you all. Thank you.
