Kerry-Ann's Story

Kerry-Ann James UC
Kerry-Ann James.
"I'm profoundly grateful for the abundance of guidance and support that I've been blessed to have experienced with the faculty and staff at UC."

Awards and scholarships like the William and Sheila Cowan (UC '41) Scholarships in Humanities have helped me stay focused on my academics in ways that allowed me to give back to my U of T community. I was more available to participate in on-campus and off-campus leadership roles and events. The relief of not worrying about tuition or other expenses made my experience more enjoyable; it allowed me to produce meaningful work and figure out how I wanted to continue contributing to my community after completing my degree. Now, I will go on to graduate school, and I wouldn’t have gotten into the prestigious schools I did without the financial support of our generous donors.

I wouldn't have had the time to do so much without awards and scholarships. I'm profoundly grateful for the abundance of guidance and support that I've been blessed to have experienced with the faculty and staff at UC. I am incredibly proud to be an alum – and it’s thanks to all the progress and care I've had the privilege of experiencing. I have achieved so much more than I could've imagined as an undergraduate, and I cannot wait to pay it forward one day as well.
