Scholarship recipient builds bright future sparked by a love of engineering

Saeed has a message for all the Western Chances supporters who have encouraged him on his journey:

“Western Chances made a massive difference in my education, they helped me to become who I am now...I’m really thankful for this opportunity that they gave me and I really appreciate it.”

Saeed received his first Western Chances Scholarship when he was in Year 9 in 2016  when he was nominated by his maths teacher for academic excellence and leadership and was also recognised as a role model to his peers. Saeed was successful in having his scholarship renewed in 2017 and has received funding for textbooks, tutoring, stationery, printing, photocopying and to purchase a desk.

“Western Chances have offered me useful programs, for example, attending Spark Engineering Camp. I’m glad I participated in this program. I met so many new friends who were interested in the same industry that I want to grow. Spark Engineering was a great opportunity for me to decide what I want to do with my future after I finish year 12.”

An adventurer at heart, Saeed enjoys being around nature.

“I’m a really active person, I play sport a lot, specifically soccer and basketball. I’m interested in photography and I play an instrument as well. “

Saeed says that his parents decided to come to Australia for one reason and that was for him to have a bright future and be the person who he wants to be.

“My big dream for the future is to become a person that makes my parents proud. After university I want to study Law and Civil Engineering as a double degree and that is one of my big dreams as well.”

We’re all proud of what you’ve achieved so far, Saeed, and we can’t wait to see what’s ahead for your future success.
