My name is Ange Niyigena. I am from Rwanda, the country of a thousand hills. After my university studies in Rwanda, I became very interested in environmental studies. My knowledge on different aspects of the environment was limited to the basics and I wanted to learn more. I asked friends and researched schools with related programs until I heard about the Environmental Technology Program at NBCC and was interested. I have learned and still learning so much from the program. I have always enjoyed going to new places, therefore, coming to Canada was very exciting for me. Winter itself was a whole new experience.
The scholarship I received was of great help through my studies. It helped me pay my school fees. The act itself provides such a motivation, knowing that somebody out there cares and wants to see you go forward. Once again, I am very thankful and appreciative of the generosity.
