Annual Forum Includes Show-Stopping Speech by SYEF Parent

Our 39 returning scholarship recipients gathered for our annual forum on January 4 to share their experiences of the past year and to listen to members of their community express their sentiments about the importance of their education. Ms. Christina, parent of SYEF scholarship recipient Adriana, gave a speech that had the group silenced as she eloquently spoke about a changing world and the role of these young people have in leading their community through dramatic changes that will come with anticipated development and infrastructure improvements. “In a globalized world, do not be a spectator,” was one of her many poignant moments. Many other speakers from the local community joined the line-up, including two students who are now enrolled in universities to share their stories of how to overcome obstacles and continue their education.
