My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Educational Pathways International, Incline Village, NV, USA
My name is Collins Anfo. I am a beneficiary of Educational Pathways International (EPI) Scholarship and a first year student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) sited in Kumasi, Ghana. I am reading BSc. Business Administration (Marketing/International Business).
There are various difficulties faced by brilliant and needy students, some of us never lost hope that things will be alright. Those who were able to forge ahead found the light towards betterment. Growing up with less resources, opportunities and privileges have made me realized how important it is to be someone who can help others like myself and society.
University education was a hedge I had to outrun but with help. I applied for Educational Pathways International (EPI) scholarship hoping for favorable outcome. Fortunately, I happened to be one of the selected few who were awarded scholarship from Educational Pathways International. I joined the EPI family in 2019/2020 academic year. Being with EPI this short while it has been quite exciting, educative and a life transforming period.
Since I joined EPI, I have gone through important sessions, meetings and trainings that did not only positively affect my academics but also my personal and social lives altogether. Gaining this scholarship was evident in improving my academics and personal life. I was much relaxed and more focused on learning to achieve my targets for the semesters. Meetings held to deliberate on issues and discuss important topics which were led by Auntie Eunice, our Program Director, proofed to be of great help. The platform gave me the chance to share my thoughts and my doubts. Interactive experience with co-beneficiaries of our big family cannot be overemphasized. One workshop we had on CV writing was breathtaking, since it opened mind on how to effectively write a more convincing and a job winning CV for myself.
Choosing to read a business program at the university traces back to my great desire to explore the fields of doing business around the world. International Business as my option, I hope to be a Business Advisor, International Economist and an Entrepreneur. I took my inspiration from various business tycoons who have not only made it in life but have actively and positively influenced their homes, communities, societies, countries and the world at large.
After completing my university education, I will do my national service in any deprived village or town and at the same time, tirelessly contributing to community service. After that, I will further my education while securing a job at a renowned business firm. Hoping for good turnouts, I will do my best to help my community.
Words alone cannot explain how honored and grateful I am to be a member of EPI family. I really appreciate the good works and the impact that the organization is giving to young people like myself. The gateway to a successful future is now possible for us. Because of your immense desire to see your plants yield good fruits, I will continue to pursue my way up the ladder and make you proud. Thank you!
