Beraca-el received one of ten Ron Larkin scholarships distributed in 2015. The Ron Larkin Scholarship is one of many ways the OCH Foundation helps Ottawa Community Housing tenants achieve their educational dreams.
Beraca-el hopes to finally utilize his life-long talent in drawing and sketching to launch his professional career. Currently, he draws inspiration from YouTube videos, comics and his own imagination. He hopes to hone his skills through studies at Algonquin College. When he isn’t expressing himself creatively, Beraca-el spends his time volunteering with the Bellevue Manor Drumming Group and helping the Youth Leadership for Change program in aiding local youth employment opportunities. Unstable living conditions have long haltered Beraca-el’s progression in life. He hopes to overcome these barriers by obtaining a college diploma.
