Dear Mount Allison Class of ’73,
First off I would like to thank the entire Class of ‘73 for generously giving me $1500 to cover my travels while on exchange. As well, I would like to extend a thank you to the financial aid office who works tirelessly to make sure students get the funding they need. The Class of ’73 Travel Bursary not only helps students get to where they are going, but it also helps many have a more fruitful experience. This bursary shows how much Mount Allison Alumni support and value a global experience for its future generations of Mount
This bursary is making a direct impact on my studies, my global experience and my personal growth. I am a third-year student pursuing a degree with Honors in Political Science and a minor in Philosophy. This semester, I am studying at the City University of Hong Kong. However, my learning has not been limited to within Hong Kong. For my classes I will be travelling to mainland China and in my free time I have/will be travelling to South Korea,
the Philippines and Thailand. Without this bursary, I wouldn’t be able to have these experiences. So far, my best memories have been travelling to the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea, the American World War Two Cemetery and Memorial in the Philippines and exploring my new home in Hong Kong. This semester I’ve learned and will continue to learn so much about the world around us. These valuable life lessons will make an impact on the ways I approach my studies, interest and my future goals.
Again, thank you for your generosity, dedication and investment into Mount Allison students studying abroad and travelling. In the upcoming weeks I will be meeting with Alumni based in Hong Kong and I’m excited to begin my involvement with the Mount Allison Alumni community. The Class of ‘73’s commitment to funding students is a great example of how this community continues to support once in a life time experiences for Mount Allison students.
Mount Allison truly is a small university with a global community, and I can’t wait to bring back what I’ve learned!
