JOURNEY

    • September 1, 2019 – Like many students finishing their first year of university, Scovia had big plans for her summer! Perhaps to find an internship, to catch up with old friends and enjoy time with her new friends, to spend time with her family, and finally to read a novel, not just textbooks and assigned reading!
    • May 18, 2019 – This semester, through one of the monthly trainings, Scovia learned about managing her finances. She learned about the value of financial and time management as valuable life skills. “Staying focused, taking advantage of my prime time, learning the art of delegation, last but not the least, not disrespecting time by misusing it” were the lessons that stood out to her.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Scovia said: “A servant leader is the one who serves beyond self, who is accountable, values others and serves in exceptional circumstances. This applies to my life now as I am hard working, accountable, a team player and a staunch believer in Jesus Christ and the values he espoused. How I see my self implementing servant leadership in my future career: by being accountable to those I will be leading, result driven, showing humility and empathy to others.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Scovia wants to be known as someone who fights for social justice and made a modest contribution towards fighting injustices! This is her first semester she is excited to settle into university life!

Scovia’S CIRCLE

BIO

Scovia grew up in a small rural village located a great distance from any urban centers. Her community was unified and generous, ensuring that no one was left uncared for. When Scovia and her four siblings lost their father as small children and then their mother many years later, neighbors cared for them — ensuring their continued well-being and education.

Scovia is pursuing a degree in Law, motivated by her love of justice and the examples of interconnectedness she saw in childhood. She has witnessed circumstances in which underprivileged and downtrodden individuals have faced persecution, and she feels great responsibility to walk alongside them.

She fills her spare time participating in local sports, clubs, and volunteering.
