A letter from Revardo

“Dear New Fortress Energy Team,

I hope this email finds you in good health and high spirits. I am writing to express my deepest appreciation and gratitude for the invaluable support you have extended to me through the provision of scholarships for my tertiary education. It is with great honor and pleasure that I convey my heartfelt thanks for your generous contribution, which has significantly impacted my educational journey and future prospects.

When I received the news that I had been selected as a recipient of the New Fortress Energy scholarship, I was overwhelmed with joy and gratitude. The financial burden that comes with pursuing higher education can often be daunting, but your organization's commitment to investing in students like myself has alleviated this concern and granted me an incredible opportunity to pursue my dreams.

Your unwavering dedication to supporting educational initiatives and empowering young individuals is truly commendable. By providing me with this scholarship, especially during the COVID pandemic, you have not only lightened my financial load but also given me the confidence and motivation to excel academically.

This support has allowed me to focus more on my studies and in turn completing them, which motivated and led me to graduate with first class honors in the field of Marine Engineering from the Caribbean Maritime University, holding the highest GPA of 3.6 for my academic year group and awarded the Dean’s Academic Award for outstanding performance.

I’m currently employed at the Port Authority of Jamaica on an Internship Cadet program. This contract has a duration of one year which ends in December. The experience and knowledge gained so far has been integral in my development and interest in excelling to the highest level in marine engineering. It is my dream to leave a remarkable impact in my country one day.

Thank you for being a major supporter in my academic pursuit. I hope your mission to uplift and support aspiring professionals like myself continues unwaveringly. It pleases my heart to have completed this degree with your assistance.

Yours truly,

Revardo Francis”
