Good day, everyone! I am sorry that it took me so long to post something here on the website. I just feel like sharing my experiences on how I became one of the Scranton's Scholars. 
 

So, last March of 2019, I was called by the Guidance Counselor because she had some news to tell me. I had no idea what was it all about because as far as I remember, I didn't do anything wrong and there was no reason for me to go there. But I still went as instructed. 

Miss Geraldyne, our guidance counselor, was one of the people who helped me process and pushed me to get this scholarship. She was the one who told me that I got nominated by the heads of the school to be one of the Scranton scholars. At first, I was surprised because I really didn't expect that I'll be one of the scholars but since the opportunity came to my way, I had to grab it. Getting this scholarship wasn't easy. It made me think that balancing time is very important in one's life. When I received the very first email that Scranton sent me, I was nervous and excited at the same time. I didn't know why I was nervous. Is it because it is my first time? I didn't know. And of course, I was excited because I was given the chance to be a part of Scranton family. It also excites me that I had a chance to lessen the financial burden of my family. 

After I received the email, I immediately signed up and did all the requirements asked. It wasn't a lot but I slightly had a hard time finishing it because my studies and the completion of the requirements happened at the same time. Thankfully, I finished it all before the deadline. A month after I signed up, I received another email from Scranton that I got accepted as one of their scholars. I was very happy and I didn’t know what to do. My family was also very happy.

Getting this scholarship wasn’t easy but I experienced many beautiful things. First, I made friends. I met this friend of mine who is studying at Trinity University of Asia and also a Scranton scholar. Even before I met her in real life, she was already nice to me. Also, we were helping each other at that time we were processing all the requirements. I am glad I met her. Second, I made my family happy and I get to help them financially. I know my parents are having a hard time paying our bills and my tuition at the same time. So, when I found out that I became a scholar, I was really happy because I get to help them. Last is I became a Scranton Scholar. Representing your institution as one of its scholars is a great honor.

To end this, I just want to thank my friends for always being there for me in good and in bad times. I thank them for helping me overcome stress in school and just having them by my side makes me happy. I also want to thank my family for always supporting me in everything that I do. I can say that I won’t achieve everything that I achieved today if they weren’t there for me. They are my life. In addition to that, I want to thank Scranton Women’s Leadership Center for giving me the opportunity to be a member of your family. I will always be forever grateful for you. Most importantly, I want to thank God for all the blessings that He gave and is giving me. I thank Him for always being by my side and for helping me overcome all the problems that I faced and is facing.
