UPDATES FROM OUR SAME SKY SCHOLARS
Diane has joined Abilene Christian University where she is hoping to study electrical engineering for the next four years.
"It is an honor and a privilege to be a Same Sky scholar. Same Sky gave me a chance to complete my high school studies. After I applied to Bridge2Rwanda, Same Sky paid for me to join a university in Rwanda where I have been studying part time as a first year civil engineering student, as well as attending the pre-university trainings at Bridge2Rwanda. Same Sky paid for my visa expenses to the USA and gave me a chance to fulfill my educational dreams and press forward to be an outstanding young girl. I'm hoping to study electrical engineering at ACU and I will do research that will help solve the growing need of energy in Rwanda by utilizing resources available locally. After my studies in the USA, I will travel back to Rwanda and actively contribute to the development of my country and inspire other girls to study STEM at university! Thank you so much Same Sky for all your support - without it I would not have a hope of achieving my educational dream in the USA!"
Beatrice has been awarded a scholarship to study environmental science at United Arab Emirates University.
"I feel blessed to be a Same Sky scholar. Being a Same Sky scholar serves as a reminder that I should not live for my self. Same Sky offered me an opportunity to complete my high school studies and also helped me pay the application and admission fees for my studies at UAE University this year. I am fortunate to live my dreams because Same Sky has cared about my education. I'm motivated and ready to tackle any challenge in environmental science. I hope to improve my technical skills as well as work towards my career goal. Being a Same Sky scholar means that I have an opportunity to inspire other girls when I go back to my community to study and solve our problems there! I'm thankful to the Same Sky foundation."
