Scholar highlight of the month

Freely In Hope

This month, I started my internship at a hospital where I provide counseling to the community. My highlight is that I was able to meet a survivor and counsel her with the knowledge I’ve gained in school. I felt so good because I was able to make an impact on her life, the same way counseling made an impact on mine.

I have so many reasons to be excited about 2020!

I just finished my diploma program in Counseling Psychology! Freely in Hope will continue to fund my degree so that I can graduate with a Bachelors in Counseling Psychology in 2022. Since I am the first child in my family of 10 to study at a university, my family respects me and sees me as a role model.

I have been able to receive continuous support from Freely in Hope in so many ways. They have given me opportunities to share my story during our events and this has greatly increased my confidence. Now, I am able to express myself by performing poems and spoken word. 

Thank you to all the Hope Circle Members who have supported my dream of being a counselor to help survivors of sexual violence, like me.

Freely In Hope

You are in for the discovery of your life. Hidden under layers of oppression, there she is under the years of neglect. You will find her and dust her off, polish her and bring her back to full radiance and luster. You will see for yourself—she is wonderful.

“I joined Hope Circle because I am passionate about the individual stories of Freely in Hope’s Scholars. The direct connection with the girls makes me feel like my contributions are making a direct impact on these young female leaders.”
