Aayaat Uthman

I am eternally grateful to have received the MarocCan Scholarship. This would have not been possible without the tremendous support and encouragement from my parents. They have always pushed me to be the best version of myself through volunteering and giving back to my community. Again, I am extremely grateful and thank you MAROC!
