Quote on what the award means to me:


“What a great privilege and honour it is to receive the Golden Key Undergraduate Achievement Scholarship. The scholarship will not only help me in furthering my studies, but will also enable me to help others. I plan to introduce some disadvantaged school children to the wonder of electronics by providing them with a basic electronics kit and introductory instruction. In this way I would like to show my appreciation for the opportunity that the Golden Key International Honour Society has afforded me.”
