The New Self Help Community Foundation has again come through for a young Caymanian scholar.
Evana Martinez is the recipient receiving the one year scholarship to attend the University College of the Cayman Islands.
Last year the New Self-Help Community Foundation assisted Matthew Hylton with its first scholarship distribution.
Ms Martinez approached the New Self Help Foundation to assist her with school fees after participating in several of the Foundation’s Talent Exposition of the Arts.
She graduated from John Gray High School in 2005 and also competed in the Miss Teen Cayman Islands pageant in 2004 where she was awarded first runner up behind Miss Ilianna De La Cruz.
Ms Martinez is a talented performer and her pursuit of higher learning would be very empowering and challenging to her.
‘The foundation’s main goal is to help youths of today develop a sense of self-worth and to help them recognize their full potential,’ said Self-Help Foundation CEO JC Connor.
‘The scholarship is part of the Youth Empowerment Programme of the NSHCF. We hope that by recognizing the needs of our young people and helping them reach their full potential, more young persons in our society will achieve success.’
The Foundation is extremely grateful to all of the sponsors and donors that assist in acquiring funds to help create and facilitate opportunities for the youths of Cayman.
