I wasn’t really destined for an HEC education. […] Where I come from, getting your high school diploma is an end in itself. HEC just isn’t a possibility, not only because of financial barriers but also symbolic ones. Nobody talks to us about it, and no one believes we can do it, it’s another world, not for us, it doesn’t even cross our mind. […] The support for scholarship students meant my dream could now become a reality.
