“Having the financial freedom to focus on my studies helped me to graduate summa cum laude in astrophysics with a minor in business. I was accepted with a scholarship to study my MSc at Leiden University. This ultimately led to my current work, which I find very challenging and rewarding. I am extremely grateful for the financial kickstart the Sobey family provided and am very happy to hear of their continued support to students.”
