Tzu Chi helps student pursue tertiary education
PHILIPSBURG -- Young St. Maartener Nikita Ambrose is now better equipped to start pursuing her tertiary studies in the Netherlands thanks to a donation she received from the St. Maarten Tzu Chi Foundation earlier this month.
Nikita is the daughter of one of Tzu Chi's long-time recipient, the late Angela Ambrose, who passed away in November 2019. Angela had been a Tzu Chi recipient since 2009.
In an effort to help Nikita on her educational journey, Tzu Chi provided her with her airline ticket, pocket money, reusable masks, a Da Ai Technology Blanket, warmer bag, and Tzu Chi founder Master Cheng Yen's Jingsi in five languages.
Nikita aspires to become a chef. Tzu Chi advised her to look into the major causes of global warming during her journey. Tzu Chi Commissioner Sandra Cheung said a chef can help save lives through the preparation of healthy meals.
Nikita thanked the St. Maarten Tzu Chi Foundation for its generous donation and for helping to jumpstart her journey to obtain a tertiary education.
Tzu Chi Commissioner Sandra Cheung said the foundation is grateful to have an opportunity to help the daughter of one of its loved long-time recipient, jump-start the process to achieve her dreams.
