I am beyond grateful for this opportunity. It has been a journey. I am looking forward to another one that would provide my daughters and I life-changing doors to walk through. Thank you so very much!Abigail
I am so happy to be funded for my schooling, this makes me feel so much more confident that my family’s future is looking bright! I don’t know how to tell you how grateful I am but to assure you that you are in my prayers. May God bless you more and more!Jarylan
Hey there! Just wanted to thank you and your foundation so so much for allowing me to go to school again. With your grant I was able to attend a four month intensive program at the Northwest Culinary Academy of Vancouver, and graduate with an 85%. Considering I have never been to school before, or applied myself academically before, this was a huge deal for me. I never knew what I was capable of, and never thought I would be able to achieve much because I did not come from a life or household with enough money to support my dreams. I want you to know that this entire experience has changed my life for the better, and now being out of school for less than three weeks I already have a full time job working in film catering, and another as a line cook working at a new restaurant in Vancouver.
I have incredibly high hopes for my future in culinary, and look forward to the challenges that will lie ahead of me in this field. I have never felt more passionate about any other line of work, and more sure that I have chosen the right career path for me. Thank you again, so so much for your support and allowing me this opportunity. It has meant the world to me.Crystal
Grad school was always my goal, but I had no idea how I could ever make it work financially as a single parent living paycheque to paycheque. Last year, a mentor encouraged me to just apply, and forget about the details and worries. I found a Master’s program that would be a good fit for a working parent. When I was accepted, I happily told my son that this was the beginning of something amazing for us.
Thanks to the Lobstick Foundation, I was able to commit to starting grad school. I’m now in my third term, and loving working hard at something that will provide my son and I with a secure and happy life. I want him to think of his mom as someone who didn’t let difficulties stop her from reaching her potential. I’ve learned that there is support out there from sources you may not even know about until you take the first step. I’ll always be grateful to the Lobstick Foundation for supporting my path.Bonnie
As the first in my family to graduate from high school, I am grateful to the Lobstick Foundation for their support in helping me complete my Master’s degree and graduate certificate so I can go on to teach college and university students. I have focused my studies on eliminating barriers for students with learning disabilities or who don’t speak English as their first language, so that they have equal opportunities to succeed in their studies.Brenda
My family and I are very grateful for your assistance. Without a doubt I will work hard and make Lobstick Foundation proud. I will be sending through a copy of my diploma as soon as it is available! Thank you once again.Claudine
I received the cheque from the Lobstick Foundation today, May 8th, 2021. When I screamed out of happiness, my child asked me the reason. I said some people care about our future, and it makes me feel grateful and happy. Thank you, Lobstick Foundation!Somayeh
