Drivers: I know that I was not born in Finland with abundance of safety and material blessings due to my own merits. Also know I did not received all the possibilities to pursue my dream and opportunities to advance my educational desire due to my own merits. My desire now is to help those who were born in less fortunate circumstances to learn, to provide for themselves and their families, to chance their dreams, to pursue their educational desires and reach their fullest potential in life and as personalities.
