Testimonial Waheed Adam

My aim is to be able to address global challenges by finding innovative local solutions to the world’s problems. I want to utilise what I learn as a base for change that I want to bring back to Zimbabwe through a better understanding of the SDGs by utilising NGO’s and other high profile organisations for my country’s economic freedom. On a more intrinsic level, the ability to analyse situations more holistically, regarding the political, social and legal facets of any country, providing an opportunity to implement my solutions apportioned to the three facets cited above in society. Being a recipient of the UCF Foundation scholarship was a not only shock but extremely humbling as well, as current students are making an international tertiary education more accessible to prospective students from all walks of life – a truly amazing feat!
