Voice From Our Students - Kaur Jaswinder Pal, Class of 2020 YCCECE awarded scholarship
KAUR Jaswinder Pal
Higher Diploma in Early Childhood Education Year 2, YCCECE
Editor’s note: Kaur is one of the twenty scholarship recipients of the Drs. Richard Charles and Esther Yewpick Lee Charitable Foundation Scholarship for Non-Chinese Speaking Students. The scholarship requires recipients to actively engage with community service and to give back to society.
I want to express my sincere gratitude to the Drs. Richard Charles and Esther Yewpick Lee Charitable Foundation for providing me with scholarship, which has gone a long way to relieve the financial stress on my family and I, especially my mother. It has not been easy for my mother to support two children on her own. This scholarship has allowed me to concentrate on my studies and be more actively involved in College life without a heavy burden hanging over me.
Community service and the celebration of diversity are also vital parts of our learning journey at YCCECE. For example, during the College’s Information Day, we created a multicultural booth to offer henna tattoos to visitors, which encouraged many to ask a lot of questions about Indian and Pakistani culture. It was a wonderful platform to promote Hong Kong’s cultural diversity, to make new friends, and to display my artistic talent. Thank you for everything!
