Why I need the iSTEPup Foundation
I’m really overwhelmed with this great and immaculate opportunity as this will help me to fully
reach my goals and achieve my full potential. I quote “A journey of thousand miles start with a
step”. This (Nursing) is my first step to my journey.
However, I need the iSTEPup Foundation in order to help me achieve my dreams. Becoming a
healthcare practitioner is always my ambition but for the meanwhile things are very tight for
my aunty who is financing my education due to the low level income of our country, Sierra
Leone to be specific. She is the only person assisting me because I had lost my both parents as a
result of fire outbreak. Presently she has gotten two biological children and I making three and
both of them are in high School.
Moreover, I strongly believe that iSTEPup Foundation will help me concentrate on my studies.
To be honest thinking about my College fees and other charges like Hostel fees etc mostly often
deviate my attention from my studies. I even many a time think if I will be able to achieve my
full potential because for someone to become a healthcare provider, the person needs to be
totally dedicated as a single mistake can cause harm to patients.
In addition, I am ready and willing to make good use of this opportunity because in this way I
will be able to participate greatly in my country in the healthcare services and nation
