International study abroad bursary program enables students to think big

 
 

 Mirana explores the campus of Yale University while attending the Yale Young Global Scholars program last summer

Currently a Grade 12 student at Canterbury HS, Mirana dreamed of attending a unique program at Yale University. Last summer Mirana participated in the Yale Young Global Scholars (YYGS) program along with approximately 200 students from almost 60 countries. Mirana found the focus on bio-medical sciences at the university level to be fascinating, but the best part of the experience for her was making new friends from many parts of the world, including Egypt, Bosnia, India, and Israel. Mirana is in the Vocal Music Program at Canterbury HS and has been enrolled in the International Certificate Program (ICP) since Grade 10. She learned about the possibility of obtaining an OCDSB/OCENET International Study Abroad Bursary from the ICP website and says the bursary played a huge role in enabling her to attend the Yale program. Of her international experience she believes: “It has really helped me shape the kind of person I want to be and have a global perspective.” Her advice to other students: “Don’t be afraid to have ambitions.”
