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!
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.

Misha Haider, Pakistan
Hi! My name is Misha Haider and I am from Pakistan. Presently, I am enrolled in the bachelor program ‘Global Responsibility & Leadership’, at University of Groningen.
After finishing high school, my focus on what I wanted to achieve in life was crystal clear. I wanted to acquire the skill set necessary for a professional career geared towards achieving a cleaner environment, absolute tolerance for diversity of opinion, greater gender equality and eradicating poverty and hunger through advocacy for social and distributive justice. That was when I got to know about this new program starting at the university, which seemed really intriguing to me. Hence, today I am one happy and content student studying in what I believe. The ambience of the campus and the people involved in building it are all very helpful and sweet which made me feel right at home since the beginning. The scholarship I received to cover a part of the living expenses acted like an added cherry on top.
