Congratulations – Esther van Eeden: Winner – 2014 Spring Study Award Scholarship US$1,000

Personal Quote:

“The only important thing about design is how it relates to people”. Having completed my undergraduate studies in Consumer Science and Marketing at the University of Pretoria in South Africa, I wanted to understand how my skills could be used to help create a more equal society by using design. The recognition I received from Golden Key was a constant reminder to stay focussed and dedicated throughout my studies. Without it, I don’t think I would have received my academic honorary colours and won best design student for my undergraduate degree. It is ultimately these experiences that motivated me to keep dreaming bigger and constantly seek new opportunities. Being accepted into Cardiff University’s MSc Sustainable Design programme at the Welsh School of Architecture was amazing because I believe that we need more international perspectives to solve the problems we face as society today. I wish to thank Golden Key for this award as it will aid in repaying my student loan."

 Golden Key wishes Esther all of the best with her MSc Studies at Cardiff Univeristy – United Kingdom
