"A unique experience", by Phillip T. Chigiya

29 DECEMBER 2017


Phillip T. ChigiyaOne of the best experiences I have had in my IFMSA journey was opening my email and seeing a message titled Congratulations from the PEHF. While the experience was scintillating, it was equally humbling to be chosen among a pool of amazing applicants who have done astounding things which make IFMSA a great Federation it is.

After seeing the call for applications sometime in November I decided to give it a try applying for the
PEHF for MM2018. I always find IFMSA related applications interesting because of how big the
Federation is, the diversity and experience of other applicants. I being awarded this scholarship has been
testament to me of the IFMSA mantra, “Think Global, Act Local”. I had not really had the opportunity to
do much on the international stage but I had done lots of work in our local NMO. I elaborated these in my
CV and motivational letter and thankfully they have catapulted me onto the International Stage.

Phillip T. ChigiyaI had discarded hopes to attend the MM2018 mainly due to difficulties in fundraising and was focusing on the AM2018. The PEHF has made it possible for me to now refocus my sight and look forward to all the unique experience of the IFMSA GA. I look forward to gaining more insight into IFMSA, meeting old and new friends and many more. More importantly I’m looking forward to more opportunities to how I can contribute to IFMSA.

Once again thank you to the PEHF donors, friends and supporters, Board of Trustee Members and the
dearest IFMSA alumni for making this unique experience possible!
