“Knowing the JRF scholarship team is on my side and has my back allows me to not keep looking back at all the struggles I’ve been through and fall into grief. The support from the JRF team has helped me be proud of the struggles I have overcome in knowing that someone out there has faith in me, even when I may falter and lack faith in myself.”
