    • September 1, 2019 – During her summer holiday, Cyntyche had an internship. She was very excited to have an opportunity to put into practices what she’s learned in the classroom.
    • May 18, 2019 – There are two things I learned this semester:
      The first one was during the monthly training about leadership and integrity, I came to know that leadership is all about serving others and it has nothing to do with holding titles. I learned that a leader must have a vision and a passion for what he/ she is doing. As Steve Jobs said: “You have to be burning with an idea or a problem or a wrong that you want to right. If you’re not passionate enough from the start, you will never stick it out.”
      The second thing is that I should keep “watering” my dreams; in addition to that I should surround myself with people who help me grow.
    • February 9, 2019 – When asked to define servant leadership, how that applies to her life now, and her future career, Cyntyche said: “Servant leadership is a kind of leadership where a leader, before expecting people to serve him/ her, serves others. As I mentioned, I am a leader in a church activity and this experience helped me to serve my comrades and not the contrary. In my future career, I will serve people. I will be leading how I can to help them to perform their duties well by listening to them and their point of view.”
    • November 19, 2018 – Cyntyche wants to be known for helping solve her country’s economic challenges! She also wants to be known for encouraging others to be the best versions of themselves! This semester she hopes to grow intellectually and spiritually!
