My name is Steven Chin Ken Loong. I am a student at SEGI University completing an associate’s degree engineering. My educational aspirations consist of acquiring a bachelor’s degree in engineering that would assist me in pursuing a construction career as a civil engineer. On the other hand, my career vision is to one day be able to provide affordable building to marginalized communities in Malaysia. However, I am certain that if I do not complete my college degree I could never have the opportunity to achieve my career goals. So, I believe that I deserve to be selected for one of your foundation IJM’s scholarships because as a hard working student I commit myself to effectively take advantage of the opportunity that the scholarships will provide me. Besides, I am a student that does not only persistently work hard academically, but also I constantly try to improve my own community’s quality of life by doing volunteer work.
