Hi, my name is Sevio. I am the first child of two children in my family. I currently study at the Tarumanagara University majoring in Accountancy. I’m from Vincentius Putera shelter. I’ve been living in the shelter for seven years. I like the spirit of education here, I’ve always been given the opportunity to continue my education to a higher level.
Finally, I was chosen to get a scholarship from the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation. I am so happy and grateful that Heliconia helps my education, so I can become somebody in the future. Thank you to the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation, I will never forget this organization.
In Vincentius Putera shelter, I learned not only about school knowledge, but also learned to be disciplined, self-reliant, and how to increase my skills. One of the skills I have is playing football. I had won some football competitions with my friends. Every year, Vincentius Putra shelter holds a music concert event, and I’m always involved in it. My friends and I were singers in Music Concert 2020. I have many skills, I play guitar, football, sing, dance and I used to be chosen to be a leader in some events in the shelter. I’m interested in various activities so I can develop my talent for the future.
I live in Vincentius Putera shelter because my family is poor, we experienced financial difficulties. My father died in 2009, which required my mother to work on her own to provide for my family. Then in 2015, I started to live in Vincentius Putera shelter. I felt sad at first, why I had to stay in the orphanage, but as time went by I realized that Vincentius Putra shelter has helped to develop my talent and gives me education. I never regretted living in this shelter. By living in the shelter, I also help my mom to save her money.
I know life will go on and I want to be happy with the people I love when I succeed in the future. The first step I will take is to study well and take responsibility for what I have chosen. I don’t want to disappoint those who help and support me, especially Vincentius Putera Shelter and the Heliconia Scholarship Foundation. Thank you Heliconia and to those who were involved in selecting me to get this scholarship. I will do my best.
Sevio’s first progress report will follow soon!
