2023 Scholarship Recipient: Sophia Clark

Sophia Clark


    $5000 scholarship for a 2nd year student studying the humanities at university


    In memory of Richard Brinkman

I am studying a double major in sociology and social development at Victoria university of Wellington.

In five years, my goal is to work on the ground for humanitarian aid or continue studying social development. I aspire to make a positive impact on communities in need. I am enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead and the potential to create meaningful change in people's lives.

In my downtime, I enjoy exploring new places with my friends and painting.

Things I love about the Sumner Ferrymead community, even though I do not live here anymore it is the welcoming community atmosphere, free heating! and the enjoyment of having a good home cooked meal when I visit, and of course seeing my family and good friends from home.

I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to my generous sponsor for their support. Their scholarship will make a significant difference in my academic journey, supporting me with the means to complete my studies and pursue my goal of going on an exchange program.
