Scholarship recipient highlights young African-Australian success

Eangano is a passionate student with great leadership potential. His energy is focused on helping others in his community to overcome barriers to success.

He is currently planning an evening of community building, working with Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) and Football Empowerment to highlight young African-Australian successes and talents. The event is scheduled for mid-November and will promote the positive majority of succeeding African- Australian youth. The event aims to empower and encourage African-Australian Youth to continue thriving and chasing their dreams.

This event is a great reflection of how Eangano draws together community networks in a spirit of cooperation and positivity. Furthering his education is also important to Eangano and he continues to develop his potential through the scholarship and additional opportunities provided by Western Chances.

“Thank you Western Chances for giving me and several of my siblings a hope and a chance for a tertiary education.”

Eangano’s dream for the future goes beyond academic achievement. He is “paying it forward”, contributing to efforts to bring his community together for a brighter future for all.

“I hope all goes according to plan with my ambition, because I will certainly help as many as I can when my time comes. And this is a seed of giving, loving and helping that you've planted in me. I hope many fruits will come from these seeds. Thank you.”

We congratulate this passionate scholarship recipient on his courage, commitment and generosity of spirit.
