I'M GRADUATED!

Hi everyone! Sorry for not posting anything since I struggled a lot with my thesis. My season of finishing thesis, being the vice president of my Student Union, and working part-time was totally not a joke. I lost 6kilos in 3 months and couldn’t gain weight anymore since then because of that. But I thank God that He always sent a lot of people to support me. I am so thankful because I was awarded as The Valedictorian, and given a chance to speak in front of the graduates in my Graduation Day. I would like to share more about it later, but this time.. I only want to post this as an encouragement for you all! Whatever season, whatever challenges you may through right now, be strong because God is with you. It’s not “do your best and Let God do the rest”, I think it is “do your part best, because God has done the rest”. Thank you Scranton for taking part of God’s work in me. Thank you for trusting me. Now, I’m currently working in Non-Government Organization who focus on improving youth livelihood in my country. I take this job because it brings me closer to my dream, which is to build my own organization. I want to spread hope, like what you’ve just done in my life. Soli Deo Gloria.   Sincerely,   Regina Siddharta

My experience

My name is Agnes Hellen and I am so grateful because I hace chance to be a member of Scranton Scholarship recipient. I know God really love me and He always give His best olans in my life.He always stand by mein my good or bad day, never for a second He leave me. Sometimes I search for him, I think if one of those time I cant find Him, isn’t becayse He leave me , but He want to make me stronger and just believe what His plans even I cant see Him with my eyes. He really know how to make me give all of my proble, to His hand and let Him do the resy. As long as I do my best, I know He wont disappoint me. For example this one, I thought I cant get this chance to be a part of Scranton scholarship, but guess what? He give me this kind of best present for me  This semester was too hard for me, but as expecte, I finished this whole semester with smile in my face, you know why? Of course becayse God always be with me. I spend a lot of my time in laboratorium because my major is Biotechnology and we have a lot of lab assignments. Every single day from Monday to Saturday I worked in laboratory. Each classes which I take have their laboratory practice so I didn’t have time for lazying around. I should study, go to the laboratory, do my assigments, do laboratory report, and many things to do. Bt God always be there for me. I know, why I can say something like that’s its because he always make my body healty so I can wake up in the morning do go class finish all the class with all the task. There was a time when my schedule is so chaotic and I feel like I cant do it anymore , but with His guidance everything turned out fine.I participate in the even of my faculty also in University . I join the Biomusic 2018 event, Biocamp 2018 , and Gelar Budaya. Biomusic is one of the event which is my faculty do annualy . In  this event we can share our talent as a musician with others, We sing together, have fun together and we chill out together. In biomusic 2018 we make a new style which is we make a band competition so everyone in Yogyakarta can join, also let their know about our Faculty and about Duta Wacana Christian University. All the band which join our competition are really talented, they play the music and sing so well. We really have a good memory back to that time. Next is Biocamp 2018,, I participated as a fasilitator for some new student in DWCU especially in our major, biotechnology. It was a really good experience for me, I meet new friends from another town with their dialect. I am so happy being a fasilitator I feel like have brother and sister. They are really cute and always share their experience being far away from their family to me. Sometimes they ask me to eat lunch together, or spend their time to talk with me, that’s really make me happy for being their sister on their new place. Until this time  they still contact me. We have good relation hereThe last event I have participated is Gelar budaya. Gelar Budaya is not my faculty event,. Because DWCU we come from different place and I culture. So we have difference of course, which is our language, our traditional clothers, our regional dance,also our regional musics and songs too. So in Gelar Budaya we want to make all the students know about each other culture by showing their traditional clothes in catwalk part, then sing their region songs, play their traditional musiv and many more to show their culture so we can know each oher because these differene make our culture richer.I am so gratefull because I face many challenges such as chaotic schedule, so many task and joining event in the faculty as long as university level. Of course I can not do all of those things alone, I can do because God always be with me nd never leave me. He always be there for me and of course He always be there for you too

The Amazing Blessing in My Life

Hi, I'm Monica from Petra Christian University, Indonesia. I got a scholarship from Scranton which is an amazing blessing in my life. This scholarship is an answer from God about the problem that I struggled before. Questions about ‘Do I have to take time off school due to the limited costs experienced by my family and work to reduce the burden on my parents, or continue my studies with a little ‘force’ in fees? Many things have happened in my life. One of them, when I received a scholarship answer via email, me and my dance extracurricular activities (Boogie Down Petra) where I served, was preparing for our event, named Petra Motion. Dance program with the aim of bringing a message for young people with the theme 'The Journey'. In this event, we want to share the message and values ??about our passion and life goals that must be fought for, because life is not just enduring but there is a purpose that God wants to do in each of our lives. In Petra Motion, we have questions that we spread through our committee clothes, and I want to ask my friends who are reading my sharing. The question is, "What is the purpose of your life?" This is my post about Petra Motion https://www.instagram.com/p/BxHrIdQgnUt/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link This our Instagram account of Boogie Down Petra https://www.instagram.com/boogiedownpetra/ This our Instagram account of Petra Motion https://www.instagram.com/petramotion_/

To Learn and To Service

Hello everyone, my name is Nadya Violenta from Duta Wacana Christian University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. So grateful to God, because of His kindness and also of course to the Scranton Scholarship, because this year I am able to join the International Service Learning that held by my university. This service-learning is held in Sumba Island, precisely in East Nusa Tenggara region for 30 days. I called this as a Once A Lifetime Experience, because if not for this scholarship I wouldn't be able to get this chance.For almost 30 days I lived there with my family in Sumba, interact with the people, learn from them and their habit, and also give all the knowledge that we know to solve the problem that they have. For all the time I lived in here, one thing that I learned from them is their strong "kinship" towards each other. Their region is set by the government as the poorest region in Indonesia, and as the person who lived there for almost a month I can say that it might be true. Most of the people who lived there only work as a farmer. Some could be the rice farmer or coffee farmer. But what made me sad is because one of the factor that hold them to develop is their culture. Traditional events like funeral and marriage are some examples of the culture that spend a lot of money. But like what I already said before, even if they have their own distress they will still care for each other, and I think it's really hard to find that kind of thing in this era. I found out that some people near where I lived are actually have an amazing talent on handycraft, so me and my friend are trying to strengthen them and make them aware about their talent and potentials. One of the problem that we found when we talked to them is the lack of confidence, and most of them are doubted that the handycraft will sell well and how to market it. So in and attempt to build their confidence we held a workshop and we invited all the people who have those talent on handycraft and the one who do not, and on that workshop we trained and learned together to make the handycraft.At the end of the service-learning we had a chance to presenting the problems that we found and the programm that we already made before in front of the Head of the Regent of the Central Sumba.I will never forget about this experince and all the knowledge that I got in Sumba, and especially their learning about kinship. I do really hope that the kids in there will have the same opportunity as me to get a scholarship, so that they can learn more knowledge and in the end when they already finish with their study, they can go back to Sumba and make Sumba a develop region.

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS

I thank to the Lord Jesus Christ that this year on July 22 ? July 28, 2019 I got a gift from God to be one of the participants Scranton-Ewha Leadership Program 2019. Scranton is a very valuable institution for me, Scranton help me a lot so that I could continue my studies even more than that I could join the SELP 2019 First Generation.I never thought that I had ever been to Korea, especially in one of the best universities in the world, Ewha Womans University. While there, I learned various cultures of the countries. I also discussed groups about environmental, economic, and social cases. I learned taekwondo for self-defense and the development of existing technology. Also, my heart was touched when I heard som of their stories, I could understand their life’s struggles through the Knowing Each Other session.Thank you Scranton for organizing a leadership program that was very useful to me. I’m grateful if I could join this program. And Thank you for giving the beautiful memories and being a great family to me while I there.

Achieving One Dream At A Time

So just a few days ago, I graduated in College!!! (Hooray!) Finally after years of dwelling in the University life, I am finally up for a brighter path ahead of me and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me. But before I get into detail about my dreams and plans after graduation, first, I want to extend my utmost gratitude to my parents who willingly sacrificed almost everything just to sustain our education.Seeing my parents' beams as I gracefully walked up on stage to receive my diploma made me tear a little because finally, after numerous years, all of their children are now degree holders. They indeed have all the bragging rights because my graduation is not my success but theirs.But as I graduate, realizations came in and that's when everything starts to confuse the most certain parts of me.At the early age of 9, I already envisioned myself to be a writer by profession. Someone who writes films and someone who has written an ample amount of books which got almost everyone hooked. I know myself and without doubt, writing is something that makes me the happiest. As I would always say, 'words are my weapons'.When something happens to me, may it be bad or not, the first thing that comes into my mind is to write about it. Without a doubt, writing is something I excel at doing and it makes me genuinely blissful. With my burning passion for writing, almost everyone around me constantly tells me that I am blessed because at such a young age, I already discovered who and what I wanted myself to be as I grow old. People continuously praised me for protecting my only dream. Little did they know, apart from being a writer, I have a secret dream and let me tell you about it. I also wanted to be a lawyer. I have been dreaming about it since I was in grade 9, when I discovered myself getting fond of reading crime related novels, getting interested with laws and politics and even find myself searching for the 1987 Philippine Constitution online! It was in 2012 when I started indulging myself with kdramas whose main characters are either in conflict with the law or are lawmakers. Been really itching to get the 'Atty' before my name since then. At the same time, dreaming of becoming a writer, too because I believe that as an individual, we are not entitled to just one dream!But knowing our family's current financial situation at that time, I killed that dream. I buried my dream of becoming a lawyer deep down my system. And focused on my ultimate dream instead.So I enrolled for the Communication program at my University. My first year was fine, I did not entirely enjoyed it because most of my subjects are minor ones that didn't catch my interest because I literally had zero writing class back then.Fast forward to my second year in college when I started enjoying my course because I already had my writing classes that kept my passion for writing even stronger. My second year in college is also the time when I had a glimpse of what is like to be law student. We had a media law subject and each class made my heart jump in horror as Atty. (Our professor) shuffles the index cards for recitation. And for some odd reason, I am enjoying the thrill. There was even a time when I wished to be called to recite one case because I am certain that I know every little detail about it. Without a doubt, I really enjoying reading the assigned cases.My second year in college made my desire to achieve both dreams, stronger. But growing up in the family of middle class means compromising.I wasn't born rich, not exactly poor, either. I grew up in a 'just fine' family. We only had enough resources. And law school could be financially challenging. I am afraid that my parents' financial capabilities are not ready for it.I've seen them struggling to pay for my expensive tuition fee, practically the main reason as to why I applied for scholarships to aid my parents with our finances. I am fortunate enough to have been blessed with a full scholarship grant. Thank you so much, Scranton!So what is the point of this post? I just need an outlet. I don't want to kill my lawyer-dream again and so I intend to protect thisdream his until I devide to pursue it. And pursuing it, means I should be financially ready to support myself because law school is costly.So I hope in 1-2 years time, I will be officially called a law student and years after, a lawyer and at the same time, a published writer. Today, I am shouting this to the universe with the hopes to get these dreams turn into reality.For now, I will keep myself busy achieving my ultimate dream of becoming a published writer and in a few years time, my law dream will follow. Mangangarap na lang ako, lulubusin ko na, diba?And as I close this chapter of my life (aka college) I, along with God, will be writing another and I cannot wait for that.
