With how my family is, growing up in a single parent home and my Mom still learning English, I am the one still helping at home with finances. I love the fact that Booth University College offers bursaries and scholarships. They have blessed me with both. The fact that they could offer this to me was amazing. Booth University College is a pivotal pillar in progressing me to the dream of my life in the world.”
