B.L.F. is NOT LOOKING FOR THE TYPICAL CANDIDATE
Beedie Luminaries Foundation is looking for resilient BC students facing financial adversity who have the academic readiness to advance their education, achieve their dreams, and inspire others.
Students with academic readiness are prepared. They have healthy learning habits and a drive that will successfully navigate them through school to a career. It sets them up for success.
Having grit means someone has the resilience and persistence to follow through on their dreams, no matter what life throws at them. Grit drives their decisions and influences their behaviour.
Being creative is thinking outside of the box. It’s contributing unique ideas and solving problems. Creative people are daring. They understand that they might have to fail a few times to win.
Empathetic people understand the emotions of others. They contribute to a healthier society by being sensitive to the feelings of their partners, co-workers, family, friends and the community at large.
