Thank you notes from scholarship recipients

“My family and I moved to Canada from Korea five years ago. When I just came here, I did not know how to speak English at all, but I have been trying my best to learn and adapt to the new environment…. I would like to go to university to be a dentist who gives back to the community to help people who have difficulty getting oral health care. My goal is to help them both financially and physically using my professional skills and knowledge as a dentist to visit homeless shelters and community centres annually to provide dental services for them. You have lightened my financial burden by awarding me [this scholarship], which allows me to concentrate more time for studying. Your kindness has motivated me to study harder and work harder to grow into someone who helps others and gives back to the community as you do. Thank you again for your generosity and support.”

“I am a first-year student in the Max Rady College of Medicine in the class of 2023. After graduation, I plan to become a family physician and am considering practicing in underserved rural and/ or Northern remote communities. I have experienced first-hand the gaps in healthcare services that exist within these communities through various shadowing and exposure opportunities, which have contributed to my desire to pursue a career in medicine, possibly in one of these locations. Your contribution has significantly impacted my ability to further achieve my academic, and ultimately, my career goals….Of great concern to me was how I was going to pay for tuition, and this award has helped me more than you can imagine.”
