The SIET bursary was used to pay for textbooks that were critical for my course. It was also useful in covering my daily food and transportation expenses.

I would like to express my gratitude towards the SIET committee for awarding me the SIET Bursary Award in 2011. Earlier in the year, my father had to undergo a bypass surgery. His condition after the surgery caused him to be unfit for his physically demanding job and he was jobless for a certain period of time. My mother and elder sister had to shoulder all the additional expenses which were incurred as a result of my father’s hospitalization.

It was during this difficult time that the SIET bursary was most helpful. The bursary was used to pay for textbooks that were critical for my course. It was also useful in covering my daily food and transportation expenses.
