    I am a Zambian aged 27 year old. Investing in me by granting me this scholarship is like investing in the future health and well being of Zambia.My goal to get a degree in International business administration to become a strong leader in Zambian business and economics in order to encourage private investment in my country. Beyond my past and future achievements lies a strong desire to become an instrumental member of society, using all of my energy to bring about constructive change and create more paths to the “good life” for underprivileged people in communities. I enjoy working on improving lives through education and health care for sick, uneducated, and underprivileged people. Improving education has been shown to be the most significant way of preventing poverty, HIV, and AIDS in Africa. I want to exemplify what a good education can do for parents have both passed on. in Africa and the world. Your willingness to extend the gift of a scholarship to me does more than send one student through college; it supports the future of a nation.currently am at U.S.A
