Matthew 6:21 reads “Your heart will always pursue what you value as your treasure. “
My name is Shanique Wilson. I am a senior at the Wolmers Girls School in Kingston Jamaica and a prospective student of Adelphi University in New York. I have a true unwavering passion and commitment to education and service. I have achieved a total of 13 grade ones in the CXC examinations which include a Top 10 placement on the CXC island wide merit list. I have also acquired over nineteen trophies and certificates altogether for outstanding academic achievement and exemplary conduct throughout my 7 years of high school. As a true testament to my dedication to service, I have actively participated in most of the service and volunteerism communities and clubs throughout my high school years. This include service clubs like Angels of Love Jamaica, Operation Help the People and Key Club. As a result, I have chosen to pursue my studies at Adelphi University above all, where I may continue my commitment to service. At Adelphi University, I plan to pursue a major in Chemistry combined with a joint degree in osteopathic medicine. I am very determined to contribute to providing exceptional health care services to every person in need. It is of my own belief that a career in medicine is a service to humanity and a belief in service is the only inoculation against selfishness, sickness and pain.
While I am extremely grateful to be accepted into the program at Adelphi, I am hindered by a lack of funds to begin my journey. Adelphi has generously awarded me with US$31,000 towards my tuition and fees however I do not have the funds to cover the remaining expenses. According to the Adelphi University Office of Financial aid my estimated cost is as follows:
University Tuition and fees: : US $41, 430
Books and Personal Expenses (Electronics and School Supplies) : US $5,390
I am kindly requesting any possible contribution towards this new journey of mine. Thanks in advance for your contribution. You have no idea how grateful I am for your support!
I would like to point out that the aforementioned costs are approximations by Adelphi University and are subject to change. They will also only be applied to my first year of university and will be reoccurring fees during the four years of the undergraduate program.
