Congratulations to Nisha Smith!

Hamilton, Bermuda

Deloitte Ltd. is pleased to announce that the 2021 Deloitte Scholarship recipient is Nisha Smith. The scholarship award offers up to $20,000 per year for a maximum of three years and is available to Bermudian students pursuing an undergraduate degree with an interest in accounting, actuarial, financial advisory, risk advisory or other business related studies. 

Nisha commented, “I'd like to express my sincere gratitude for being selected as the recipient of the Deloitte Scholarship, and I appreciate your recognition of my efforts. I am currently studying Quantitative Risk Management and Insurance with a concentration in Actuarial Science. While in school, I plan on passing as many preliminary actuarial exams as possible. Thanks to Deloitte, I am one step closer to that goal.” 

The scholarship winner was chosen by the Deloitte Scholarship Committee from an impressive group of young candidates. The committee chose Nisha based on her unwavering drive and determination towards reaching her academic ambition of becoming an actuary. “As I continue my journey, I am not only motivated to make myself and family proud, but my community proud as well. Being a Bermudian is such a privilege as there are many opportunities like this one, available on the Bermuda Scholarships website. I am looking forward to being a part of the exceptional team at Deloitte,” Nisha stated.

The successful candidate is pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Quantitative Risk Management & Insurance with a concentration in Actuarial Science at St. John’s University. Having previously received her associate degree in Actuarial Science from the Bermuda College, Nina’s goal is to complete a number of the actuarial exams before achieving her bachelor’s degree. Her aspiration is to return to Bermuda as a qualified actuary, becoming a role model for other Bermudian students who are interested in exploring this field.  

Rachelle Frisby, Partner in Financial Advisory, commented, “At Deloitte, we seek out individuals who are passionate about making an impact every day through meaningful, value-added work. We seek to invest in local talent and hope to play a role in their continued development and career aspirations. Therefore, I am pleased to present Nisha with our 2021 Deloitte scholarship. Nisha has demonstrated commitment to her educational journey, and we congratulate her hard work and dedication towards pursuing her degree while also completing a number of her actuarial exams. Deloitte wishes her continued success in her studies.”
