My name is Mbeng Tanyi, I am a graduate from the University of Buea with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Accounting.
I heard about RGE Foundation from my older sister, who encouraged me to apply for the scholarship program. After going through the application and interview process, I received an email informing me that I had been awarded the scholarship to pursue my undergraduate degree. This opportunity was an answer to prayer for me and my family.
In addition to becoming a scholar, I also participated in the mentoring program. The mentorship program has been instrumental in helping me structure my life in way that enhances success. It’s been rewarding to apply the principles I learned from the mentorship sessions m into my daily personal, academic and professional life. I wasn’t knowledgeable about managing money and building healthy relationships but I have learned those through my participation in the mentoring program. My life was impact through this scholarship program in that I was able to obtain my Bachelors Degree without any financial issues, I was only responsible for keeping up with my grades. Also, I have grown in my faith and developed more in my intellectual capacity. My next step after graduation is enroll for Masters classes. I have been accepted into a two years Masters in Accounting Program at the University of Buea. Since my family didn’t have to pay for my undergraduate degree, they saved up money to cover my masters. In the next 5 years, I see myself accomplishing my dreams of working in the field of accounting and fulfilling my dreams of being resourceful to my community. As a scholar graduating from the university through the RGE Scholarship and Mentoring Program, I would like to advise both current and future scholars to make the most of this opportunity. I’ll encourage then to put to work every principle that’s taught by the mentors, because it goes a long way to shaping our lives.
