Mamud Joof, wearing a casual shirt, tucked in navy blue jeans, walked energetically around his school campus with a big smile on his face. He has recently been awarded a scholarship by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (MoHERST). He described the experience as illuminating and refreshing.
“It has granted me the pathway to success because, if I didn’t have the scholarship, I do not think I would have completed my studies,” he admitted. Thus, he likened his award of the scholarship to “moving from a dark room into an illuminated one”.
