I am writing to thank you for the generous bursary. I was very happy and appreciative to learn that I was selected as a bursar.
I am a final year Bachelor of Commerce student at the University of the Western Cape with majors in Finance and Information Systems. I plan to pursue a career in the Financial Services sector upon graduating. After graduation, I plan to gain experience in the industry or continue with my Postgraduate studies. Thanks to FASSET, I am one step closer to that goal.
Attending the Life Skills Workshop in Magaliesburg was a great experience for me. Besides meeting students from different Universities around SA, I had the opportunity to learn so much more on how to tackle real-life situations. The Life Skills workshop made me more aware about how to handle personal finances, what to expect when entering the workplace and most importantly it taught me to always remember to strive to do my best.
By awarding me the FASSET Bursary, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on my studies. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
