On Friday, the 5th of July 2019, the Ubuntu Visual Arts Scholarship was presented to Grade Six graduate of the Wolmer’s Preparatory School, Nia-Amoi Currie, by UCAP Founder & CEO, Kathryn Lawrence.
The award accompanied Nia’s receipt of the Top Visual Art Student Award for the academic year of 2018-19.
“The award was inspired by my own receipt of the Top Visual Art Student Award in 2008 at the Wolmer’s Preparatory school. That really set the tone for who I would become as a creative and a person. It has always been a strong desire of mine to pass on the baton to persons coming behind me and help them to actualize their goals. I’ve been so blessed with all that I have had the opportunity to receive and experience and I want nothing more than to do what I can to allow other persons to receive more than I have, so that they can be propelled even further when their time comes.
This is honestly the reason for Ubuntu, ‘I am because we are‘ and my hope is that I can continue to help others to be because I am/was.”
