La Mu Hla

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you generously for funding the Catholic Foundation’s Refugee Tertiary Scholarship. I am very honoured to be the recipient of this award. It has assisted me greatly in paying my tuition fees and school requirements.

I am currently a third-year student at Whitireia studying Bachelor of Social Work. I have successfully completed 3 years in the field of Social Work, with next year beings my final year. My goal is to complete my degree here at Whitireia and then start working in areas such as working with refugees, elderly or special needs.

While attending my studies, I have been involved with Challenge2000 and completed my youth work certificate with them. I have also volunteered at the Salvation Army family store based in Elsdon, Porirua.

Receiving this scholarship has motivated me to maintain my grades and complete my degree. I look forward to being able to give back to the community once I begin my career. I thank you for your confidence and willingness to help me achieve my goals.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

God Bless
