Congratulations to Julia Boonzaier - Winner of the Golden Key Study Abroad Scholarship - US$1,000
Here is Julia's personal statement:
Thank you very much for awarding me the Fall 2012 Study Abroad Scholarship. This is truly an honor and an amazing opportunity. Winning this award is definitely one of the highlights of my academic career and it inspires me to keep aiming high to reach my goals. I am currently an international student at the University of Antwerpen (Belgium) doing a Master’s degree in Neuroscience, majoring in preclinical and clinical neuroscience. I started my academic career in Cape Town, South Africa, at the University of Stellenbosch where I majored in biomedical sciences with the focus on anatomy and histology. I intend to use the prize money towards the continuation of my postgraduate education.
It is an honor for me to be a member of the Golden Key Society. I am humbled by this scholarship, and above all, thankful to all the people who contributed to my success by inspiring, encouraging and supporting me to reach my full potential.
