 “And we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God to them who are the called according to His purpose. “ - Romans 8:28 King James Version

I am Aiko Canales Eugenio, I am 25 years old and a graduate of the Bachelor of Science major in Psychology in Trinity University of Asia from the Philippines. As I recall my college years, I am blessed with an achievement of a Dean’s Lister from School Year 2008 until 2011. This feat is a category granted for students who reach a specific general weighted average (GWA) that must be maintained within a given academic term or year. I am able to gain one of the highest averages of 1.61. Not only have I been able to keep this achievement, but also I am an active member of different academic and non-academic organizations of my alma mater. The organizations I am a part of are the Psychology Society, College of Arts and Sciences Society, Honor Society and Trinity Center for Community Development. All support the University in carrying out its vision and mission to a life that is God-centered and in service to the community. These social-learning programs aim for the students, faculty and administration to extend their services to people of need. There is one outreach experience I had in rural mountain place of Olongapo City that made me attentive to the children scarce of basic needs and educational resources. We have provided them gifts including school supplies, food and clothing. As a young lady, I have learned to deal and appreciate the poor community with patience and integrity. I thank the Lord because He used me to share and proclaim the gift of salvation to my friends, classmates and teachers. I know that this is the best accomplishment I’ve earned so far; that is to be a shining light, have a good testimony and have an excellent performance in school. 

 I believe that there is really a rainbow after the rain. After four long years of hardship, I am now graduate and facing the world of service by the grace of God. I am grateful and thankful to God because He placed me in the educational setting to work. Right now, I am currently working at Grace Christian College’s Kindergarten Department as an Office staff and an occasional Substitute Teacher. In this institution provided by the Christian environment, I actively partake in different tasks and responsibilities. I am happy to share that I have lots of accomplishments like being involved and active in GRACE PROMOTION, GRACE-TASK-FORCE, GRACE LANGUAGE COMMITTEE wherein all these activities cater the needs of parents, students and even the foreign students who come to our school.
 

 In my home church, The Lighthouse Bible Baptist Church, I am a consistent donor of blood every 3 months in our “Blood-Letting drive” project. I also continue to teach high school girls in Sunday school and play an active part in children’s club ministry, choir member and as a leader in our Single Working Young People program. In the career ministry, we do “Handog Kalinga,” meaning helping children suffering from cancer by giving gifts and foods to them during Christmas season. And every Saturday after I work in the office, I spend my time teaching children in our “Saturday Bible School“. These are all my accomplishments and I will still continue to dedicate myself beyond my capacity as an individual because I believe that this is an opportunity and privilege to serve God and we should use our talents by sharing it with others.  

 

My passion is people; I want to be of help to those who struggle in different areas of their lives. Because of this passion, I want to pursue a Master’s Degree in Family Studies and become a Counselor to further understand the proper behavior in families and its effect on individuals in our society. From my studies, I noticed that many people have imbalanced personalities mainly because their families were not able to offer proper care and love. They lack the training they need from the family and as a result, their behaviors affect the community. I look forward that someday I can achieve my goal to become an effective Counselor not only in school, but also in my country and to the world. 

Scranton Scholar has been that answered prayer; it really benefited me a lot. Scranton not only helped me financially in my studies, but it motivated me to strive and excel in every endeavor of my life.  It has been my inspiration in all circumstances and successes I have encountered. I never thought I can come this far and pay for my tuition fees prior to encountering Scranton Women’s Leadership Center. I know that meeting this organization is God’s sufficient grace.

What a great opportunity to be part of Scranton. When you’re a member of Scranton you are inspired to study because all your duties and efforts are acknowledged and appreciated. Everything in my life has changed; they were all there from the very start of my journey and still concerned about my career in life to this very day.

 There is no indicated time or age to start striving hard; it is the will of the person. To achieve greatness is never late to anyone who wants it. You just need to have faith and desire.  -Aiko C. Eugenio

 I am proud to say, I am a Scranton Scholar and because of people like Scranton I now have a brighter future!
