I received the Youth Educational Assistance award this month, and I wanted to let those concerned know how much it means to me to have this assistance. I am in the final year of the Medical Radiography program at Camosun College, and without this help, I would not have had the means to complete my summer semester. It would have been devastating to drop out of the program with only 3 months to go, so I am extremely appreciative. I know that this funding makes a world of difference to those who apply for it. Thank you for all that you do in helping former youth in care better themselves, and in turn, their communities.
