“SMB helped me on my personal and family’s financial burden. This enables me to have a fruitful university life. SMB does not only help me financially, but it also gives me the opportunity to do volunteering work which is a value-add to my resume. This is a plus point being an SMB recipient as most employers are looking for candidates with a strong record of CCA or Community involvement.”
