To be a part of a programme with ample support and opportunities is a huge privilege. Especially to then find out I had been awarded a scholarship from FMG. Thanks to their joint support, I feel even more confident in my ability to dive into this new career with confidence and the knowledge that Fidelity Life and FMG can see my potential."
