One World International Scholarship

Earlier today (should I say yesterday as its now 3.20am, Saturday), I received an e-mail confirming that I had been awarded the One World International Scholarship by the Irving K Barber British Columbia Scholarship Society and UBC!

The scholarship is awarded to support BC students in embarking on international exchange. The financial aspect of this scholarship will certainly help when I start my year-long work term with AIESEC in Spain, but I’m even more excited at the fact that my work with AIESEC at UBC has been recognized in this way by both the Irving K Barber Society and the university itself!

I want to give a big thank you to Professor Raul Pacheco (@raulpacheco, attended his Poli 375 Global Environmental Politics class in third year – you might want to sign up for it!) and Deb Browne (President of Entrepreneurial Success Network and member of AIESEC UBC Board of Advisors) for helping me out with the application!

Extra credit

Did my statistics exam today – not enough time to finish the most important question! I hope I did well on the rest of it though. After the exam, it seems that a lot more people were in the same situation – lots of people didn’t get to finish the same or different parts of the exam, so I’m really hoping for a grade adjustment or a curve!

At the end of the semester two weeks ago, the professor offered an extra credit opportunity (an extra 1% bump up on the overall grade) – needless to say, I seized the opportunity today by taking a survey that took me about 45 minutes to complete. I think a whole lot of people signed up for time slots to take the survey after the exam!
