It is because of funding such as this that I can continue to be a part of the law program at the University of Alberta. Through this excellent program, I have had the chance to learn from accomplished personable professors that have, in just a few short months, helped me grow as a student and have greatly expanded my knowledge. This funding will play an essential role in helping me achieve my dream of becoming a lawyer while reducing my worries about the extensive finances needed to pursue this career.
