I am so honored to be one of the recipients of the Ruparelia Foundation Scholarship. Thanks to your generous support, I am the first in my family to attend the higher institution of learning.

Growing up in a less privileged community has not only offered financial and academic challenges, but has also helped me realize the value of a University education.

Currently,  I am writing the exams for my first year second semester of my undergraduate career at Victoria University and I can now report that my academics are off to a first-rate start. My plan at this stage is to complete a Bachelors degree in Oil and Gas Accounting. Victoria University offers one of the finest programs in the country and I consider myself fortunate to be able to attend.

Working as a volunteer in my community throughout my high school career, I enjoyed helping people learn about community services available to them. I hope to be able to serve in the oil and gas field sometime in the future, where I might have even more of the ability to help the less fortunate and under-represented people.

My educational pursuits would not be possible without the generous support from scholarship sponsors like your organization.  Thank you please so much for enabling this opportunity in my life.

I aspire to make a difference to the lives of the people in the community as well as helping the community to achieve development.
