BDM Scholarship helps UFCW 175 member chase law school dream

Ottawa – June 29, 2019 – Peter Kasabri is one of eighteen winners of the UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship. Currently completing the Bachelor of Commerce – Finance program at the University of Ottawa, Peter is a proud UFCW Canada Local 175 member who works at Loblaws.

Brother Kasabri had the following to say about winning a UFCW Canada – BDM Scholarship:

“I am hoping to go to law school after my undergraduate. My goal in life is to open my own law firm to help others who are in need. Winning this scholarship is huge to me. I work hard and believe that it will all pay off one day. I have been working at Loblaws for over a year and it has been an amazing time. I have made many friends and get along well with my colleagues. This scholarship will help me focus on my studies – rather than worrying about finances – and I would like to thank UFCW Canada for all of the support.”
