The mail informing me that I had been selected as one of the scholarship recipients was the most beautiful moment in my life. Working as a sales associate in a third country for over four years made me realize how difficult it was to reconnect with my true interests and passions. During my spare time, I constantly searched online, dreaming of enrolling in the best journalism school and jotting down my aspirations in my wish list book. During one of these searches, I discovered the Asian College of Journalism. I eagerly paid the entry fee for the entrance exam, thinking that I would sponsor my studies, but to my delight, I later found out that I was eligible to apply for a scholarship.

After four years away from academia, being awarded the scholarship felt like a long-awaited breakthrough. Currently, I am employed as a Communication and Documentation Officer at the Tarayana Foundation, where I have been working for the past two years. The knowledge and training I gained from my postgraduate studies have been invaluable, enabling me to excel in writing stories and managing all our documentation needs. The scholarship and the education I received have genuinely transformed my professional journey, and I am immensely grateful for this opportunity.”
