YAF Scholars’ Transformative Journey at NYU Candidate Weekend

This past weekend marked a momentous occasion for five of our exceptional Young Achievers Foundation Ghana (YAF Ghana) scholars. These dedicated students embarked on an incredible journey to the prestigious New York University campus in Abu Dhabi, UAE, to participate in the NYU Candidate Weekend.

This fully-funded, selective program is not just any event; it’s a gateway for a handful of applicants from around the globe to immerse themselves in what could potentially be their future academic home. It’s a testament to NYU’s commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, where students from all walks of life can come together, dream big, and aspire to make those dreams a reality.

Our scholars were among the few selected for this unique opportunity to assess NYU in depth, considering how the university aligns with their personal goals and aspirations. Through a series of meticulously planned events, they gained invaluable insights into student life, academic rigor, and campus leadership at NYU Abu Dhabi. This experience went beyond just touring a campus; it was about envisioning a future filled with possibilities, challenges, and the chance to make a meaningful impact on the world.

We are immensely proud of our scholars for earning their place at this distinguished event. Their selection is a testament to their hard work, resilience, and the bright future that lies ahead of them. It also underscores the mission of YAF Ghana: to empower and support our students in reaching heights they may have once thought unreachable.

To our scholars, congratulations once again on this remarkable milestone. May this experience at NYU Abu Dhabi be just the beginning of a journey filled with success, growth, and transformative experiences.
