Last year, I was fortunate to receive a 1,000$ scholarship from Credit Counselling Services of Atlantic Canada. I went to high school in a small community and I was one of only a few who applied for that scholarship in particular. Following my graduation, I went directly to college to get my Medical Laboratory Assistant course and certification. This course was a forty week program followed by a four week practicum. It was taught at the Academy of Learning College in Miramichi, NB which is located half an hour away from where I lived. I had to travel back and forth everyday to go to college. When I received the scholarship, I was very happy because it was going to help me financially in earning my diploma and because I traveled a lot, I knew I had to spend a lot of money on gas and other essentials. Thank you Credit Counselling Services of Atlantic Canada for helping me achieve my goal of successfully graduating from college. I am now employed as a Medical Laboratory Assistant in one of our local hospitals.
