Good results cannot be obtained instantly but I am still in the process of achieving my goals. Hi, I am Erlita now in my 2nd year of English Education Department at Duta Wacana Christian University (UKDW). This my first year after receiving the Scranton scholarship and I want to thank you for bringing the greatest opportunity in my life. This semester is the hardest semester. I have experienced due to the increasing spread of Covid-19 and other situations that make me frustrated. However, I am very grateful to have been through it all because of the presence of God. I would like to share my experiences during this semester and I hope you enjoyed my story.

            At first, I was desperate to continue studying because of my family's unfavorable financial condition. My father is no longer working while my mother is a housewife. My older sister is the only one who supports our family. Therefore, my sister could not pay for my studies until finish. Besides, I had symptoms of depression for a while but I tried to get up and think about my future. I am very grateful to be given this precious opportunity by the Scranton Scholarship so I can continue my study at UKDW. I have learned many things from this experience, despite the many obstacles, step by step I have enjoyed the progress.

            This semester I joined as a volunteer in one of the office on campus which is the Office of Partnerships and Public Relations (Biro IV). This experience really helps me to develop my communication skills and learn to help others better. Apart from that, I attended several online seminars to increase my knowledge and helped me doing assignments. Another experience I attended several online seminars to increase my knowledge and that helped me with my assignments.. From those webinars, were able to help me a lot this semester because I ventured to take one subject from semester 5, namely Language Teaching Methodologies. At first, I was worried that I could not pass this course. I kept trying to improve my skills step by step and work hard. Finally, I got good results in this class. This semester, I focused on improving my grades to be better than the previous year.

            I certainly wouldn't have had this valuable experience without the help from Biro 4 until I got the scholarship from Scranton Women’s Leadership Center. I am very grateful for this opportunity, and I thank the people around me for their full support. Lastly, I would like to say that I enjoyed the step-by-step process despite the unexpected obstacles. I will always try to build a positive mind and work hard to get good results.
