TRIO are government effort programs in the United States
intended to recognize and provide needy service for people from disadvantaged
backgrounds like me. Being former refugee, I recognize refugees desperate need for
talents to show with possible solutions working towards educational
goals. I represent that. Coming from refugee background my greatest challenge
is to uplift the living stander of other refugees around the world. The need of
guide for talents to show cannot be under-foreground; hence my application to
this scholarship and TRIO will not let it to be under-foreground.
After living without hope, I am now seeking scholarship
support to continue studying Bachelor level.
My interest in theater art and technology from my lasting interest to
uplift the refugee’s lifestyle. Appropriately, my current research interests in
theater art and technology require an underrating of how newer technology and
theater work for refugee who does not know about it. As a Bachelor’s student in the University of
Vermont, I intend to learn about theater technical aspect and technologies help
to uplift the refugee’s lifestyle from the perspective of someone born and
raised and does not have hope in refugee camp.
I will bring an exceptional and genuinely necessary viewpoint to my
Bachelor program with the help of TRIO.
I will take technical and hypothetical learning from my Bachelor program
and help of TRIO to learn it with me to different refugee’s camp to assist my
profession objectives as a helping hand to uplift the life of many refugees.
To argument my hypothetical understanding of theater and
technology, I worked with Surwat theater as acting teacher in Bhutanese Refugee
Camp, Nepal. This not only increase my guiding
skills, but also helped to develop my skills of communication with people
without hope like myself. Surwat theater
is Bhutanese Refugee Camp’s acting organization founded by fifteen teenagers including
myself. I had the responsibility of
teaching how technology can use on street drama to tackle on human rights and
environment issues as TRIO tackle on how to help disadvantaged backgrounds
people like me to achieve their educational goal. Street drama were spread to various people
among refugee camp and organizations who were helping when I was still in camp
as TRIO is help me and other people at University of Vermont. As studding at UVM, I intend to develop my
career to increase refugee’s capacity to hope, act and use new technology for
tackling human right issue but without the help of TRIO I would not achieve.
I participated in a Computer Science program at Center for Technology,
Essex, where I attained greater awareness on social development by teaching
courses on technology, art, and theater that will benefit refuges lifestyle. I worked with former refugee’s people in
Winooski to teach them how to social media and computers and encourage them to
show their art talents. Overseeing such a task gave me extraordinary knowledge
on how straightforward activities can change lives of many refugees as it does
to me with the help of TRIO and worked I did in Winooski.
TRIO with the help of VEOP Scholarship has a history of
awarding scholarships to disadvantaged backgrounds people to bring knowledge
and supervision abilities to their communities and disadvantaged backgrounds
people around the world. I have done some of this work however I need to
proceed and with VEOP Scholarship and TRIO, I can. The continues focus of the
Computer Science and Theater will give me the necessary skills to address and
improve the life style for refugees around the world through technology and
theater art. I thank VEOP and TRIO for time and thought for this prestigious
