Receiving a scholarship to achieve my passion of teaching means more to me then I originally realised upon applying for this scholarship. The support and the family I have come to find in my donors and fellow scholarship receivers has contributed in ways that funding alone cannot. The combination of funding and a strong group of people who believe in my abilities and support me through my learning journey at university has built a strong foundation that I will proudly build upon for the rest of my life.

Thank you Lord’s Taverners for identifying the strong points of supporting individuals like myself who have experienced disadvantages that take a toll on our self-esteem, self-belief and perseverance. Thank you for helping me grow in myself in a way that I can apply through so many aspects of my current and future life. Through my scholarship you have changed more than my life and I feel very proud to represent such an amazing group of people who put their hearts into building, maintaining and developing this organization. You all do an incredible job in combining your strengths to successfully change people’s lives.
