Ishita’s Biggest Challenge

While Ishita applied to scholarships, she had a recurring thought:

“It was difficult for me to understand that I won’t win a certain scholarship. It was hard to get over that feeling at times.”

Feelings of self-doubt are often the biggest hurdles when applying to scholarships. When asked about how she overcame this struggle, Ishita attributed her resilience to the support from her family, who immigrated to Canada when she was 11. Their hard work inspired Ishita to bring a positive change in her life as she pursued the same occupation as her father’s, to be a radiologist.
