"I am so delighted to be one of the recipients of the 2010 OCA-AXA Achievementsm Scholarships…coming from a modest and economically challenged family; this scholarship strongly assists in reducing the financial issues [for] my family. It motivates me to keep up my effort on my studies and maintain good grades through my academic years”
