Dear the Irving K. Barber B.C. Scholarship Society and the Victoria Foundation, Thank you very much for selecting me as the recipient of a One World International Scholarship for overseas study in 2011! I am having a wonderful experience in Britain studying the second year of my Bachelor of Business Administration degree at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston. Throughout my studies and my travels I have been learning about many different cultures and outlooks on life. I have made friends from almost every corner of the globe and have visited more countries than I can count on one hand! Thank you again for your generous financial support. You have helped to make my dreams a reality!
