"I recently received my final grades for my Law degree. It is my pleasure to tell you that I will now be graduating from the Faculty of Law at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Mona, with an LL.B with Upper Second Class honours.
I think it is therefore in order for me to express my gratitude to the New Fortress Energy Company, for awarding me a scholarship at the beginning of my second academic year, which not only assisted greatly with the payment of my tuition fees but which also kept me motivated.
As indicated to the Scholarship Committee, my sister was diagnosed with two chronic illnesses in 2014 and had to do surgery and continues to receive treatment for her illnesses. It was therefore necessary for her to move overseas given the supportive health care facilities for the aforementioned specific health challenges. This meant that the high costs for tuition fees as an international student presented unforeseen and unplanned for additional demand on our family’s budget.
