This scholarship has given me the pedestal and the belief to aim high. I would not be here had it not been for that overwhelming act of generosity, but because I am, younger cousins of mine are now taught by their parents to aspire to be like me, to go to university and make something of themselves.

My time at LSE has been an amazing experience. When you hear of individuals winning jobs with top organisations, winning top sporting competitions or even just winning an argument, you know you're in an environment where everyone is aiming to be number one.

I still frequently have moments when it dawns on me that I'm in fact being taught by some of the world's leading professors who other people can only learn about through books and published papers.
