Getting accepted to the Calouste Gulbenkian Scholarship Program for Syrian Armenian within the Global Platform for Syrian Students was one of the most important moments in my life because I believed in more for the sentence that says “there is nothing impossible in our life“.
I was feeling so lost and hopeless when I realized that I would not continue my master degree program because of money wise. But applying for Calouste Gulbenkian scholarship was only the light I saw in that dark tunnel and the only chance to keep going & get my master degree. I prayed a lot and believed that God will find out something and happened what I believed.
I would like to tell every person who believes in his/her dreams, just don’t let any weak or trouble disappoint or give you up, cause life is challenge
and battle to reach our dreams.
Armenians have never surrendered. As history proves, hard times that put us to ground, was never able to keeping us from standing up again and rebuilding our life from the scratch. We create a community wherever we go, becomes the one of the most influential cores that brings hope, believe and passion, and upgrades the societies we live in.
One day I hope to become an example for Armenians, those who suffer and reach. Wherever life takes them, they put roots in the ground. In addition, one day becomes the tree that shadows all those who need a rest to go on the hard road of success and greatness.
Family, friends and colleagues in university were very happy and impressed of accepting to the Calouste Gulbenkian/Global Platform Scholarship Program and they really appreciated the idea of the Syrian-Armenian students’ scholarship, especially in the time that most of
students left their universities and were trying to find another hope.
Finally, thanks to every person that was behind of this Scholarship Programme that made our dream to become true.
