SINGLE MOM STUDYING TO BECOME DENTAL ASSISTANT
Home Suite Hope single parent participant Daliah was proud to accept the 2023 FCT Scholarship from company executives August 23.
The scholarship is named for the late Honourable William G. Davis, a chairman of FCT’s board, former education minister and Ontario’s 18th Premier. This award has reflected William G. Davis’ passion for education and investing in youth since its inception in 2015.
For numerous years, FCT has presented the William G. Davis Scholarship in partnership with Home Suite Hope (HSH), a charitable organization that supports single, unhoused or otherwise at-risk mothers and their families by providing them with housing, support networks, education funding and a path to self-sustainability.
HSH reviewed numerous applications this year, but one stood out — Daliah, who is currently studying to become a dental assistant.

Daliah shares her story
I hope you’re all doing great! I want to share a little about myself and my dreams.
My name is Daliah, and right now, I’m on an exciting journey, completing my dental assistant program. It’s been an incredible experience so far, and I can’t wait to be part of the dental care community, helping people achieve healthy and confident smiles.
But there’s so much more to me than just being a dental assistant. I’m a proud mom to the most adorable little boy, who’s turning two soon. He’s my little buddy, and we absolutely love spending time outdoors, especially near beautiful water bodies. Travelling with him is a blast; we love exploring new places and trying out delicious foods together.
In my free time, I’m an avid reader, especially when it comes to self-development. I find it so
empowering to learn and grow personally. Journaling is another passion of mine, allowing me to
express my thoughts and emotions freely. Oh, and crafts! My son and I have a blast creating art
together — it’s a wonderful bonding experience.
I also cherish the moments with my friends, laughing and creating memories together. And you know what else? I’m a bit of a finance enthusiast, too — I enjoy reading about investing and watching shows like Shark Tank.
Now, I have to admit that balancing my studies, motherhood, and personal interests can be financially challenging at times. That’s why receiving this grant money will make such a difference in our lives. It will allow me to invest more in my education, spend quality time with my son, and explore new places and experiences that enrich our lives.
I believe in making the most of every opportunity and constantly striving to improve myself and the
lives of those around me. With your support, I will now be able to do just that and achieve my dreams, all while making sure my son has a bright and adventurous future.
Thank you all for your support. I’m truly grateful for this scholarship, and I promise to make the most
