Scholarship Recipients

Receiving the Moving Humanity Forward scholarship makes me more responsible to my identity as a student at Sofia University because I realized once I accepted the scholarship, I had to perform better to promote transpersonal psychology and humanistic psychology. I understand that I can play an influential role as a therapist and psychologist in the future and contribute what I learn to society.
