Cassandra*, the girl we wrote about from Vol 4, 2014 (yes it’s almost two years ago) has just recently finished her diploma in Mass Communication at First City University College (Previously known as KBU). She was struggling to keep her CGPA in good standards at the middle of course but at the end, she got herself in the dean's list and being the top few in class! (CGPA of 3.36).
Cassandra's hard work paid off!
Today, she is almost fully independent; she has gotten her car license while studying, grabbed as many part time working opportunities and never limits herself in learning. Even after only about a year in her diploma studies, she has been expressing to the SHELTER staff who is overseeing her progress that she would want to finish her studies to a degree level. A huge thanks to IACT college, her dream will now come true. Our Executive Director approached their boss and they were quick to respond. They have offered Cassandra a scholarship!

Even though it is not a 100% scholarship, we are truly thankful to them. Cassandra will start her studies in September for BA (Hons) Media, Culture and Communication. However, because it is only a partial scholarship, we need help with sponsorship of the remaining fees (Affiliation fees of RM19500 to University of Sunderland) , allowance and rental support. If you are interested to be that key individual in empowering Cassandra’s life, please do not hesitate to contact us at 03-79550663 or write to "Garyhengshelter@gmail.com”.
