Hello, everyone! I am Sienna Eunsoo Kang, an intern of Scranton Women's Leadership Center. I participated in 2017 Asian Young Women's Leadership Development held in Vietnam in February, where I met a friend who was a Scranton scholar! She has graduated from university, has grown into a powerful woman leader and has had a tremendous impact on where she is. I was so proud that she was a Scranton Scholar because the leadership she showed during the program was amazing! I wanted to listen more of her story with the thought that I would be impressed if I met other Scranton Scholars. So I had dinner with her before the end of the program and I traveled her life for a while. Can we go into that trip together?

At that time I don't have any scholarship so I felt so sad and really concerned because my family couldn’t support me anymore. But at that time, my teacher told me you can apply in here, Scranton. When I heard the Scranton scholarship that is the supporting women I felt so glad because my hope regained again, gave me hope more again to go to continue the things I started it in my patient. Therefore, it was change in my life and it reminded me that Scranton support me and I need to support someone as payback when they study they can continue and still have hope for education.

Finally, if there is something you would like to say to other scholars to see this interview, would you please?

Yes, I’m very thankful to Scranton and you. It was a great time for me and thank again for allowing me this opportunity. One of the great chances to study and strive is when someone will help you and believe in you to pursue your dream. Scranton scholarship is one who helps me to attain that dream in finishing my College degree. So I can say that because they believe in the ability of their scholars they help us to dream dreams. Being a woman young leader is not that easy but I know that when you believe to someone, you uplift there life and you make their life. And that's so awesome for the glory of God.



Has her story been a strength and encourage for you? She was running for her dreams and a hopeful future even though she had a difficult situation. I believe that Jovel is not only in the Philippines but also in this time around the world. Scranton Scholars! You are so beautiful beings. We believe that you are the women leaders who will move the world in the future. For the day when this earth can be more peaceful and smile, let's go together!
