A Fund Isaan alumni: part fifteen: Rodjana

In 2012 Rodjana was 18 when she received a scholarship from Fund Isaan, thanks to the support of 3AMB, a fund managed by the King Baoudouin Foundation. She had just started her two year studies Accounting at Prasat Industrial and Community Education College.

Rodajana had always dreamed to work in education to help improve the level of education in her own region. She was a very good student, she scored 88% in her first semester. She loved studying taxes. Whenever she could she followed non-mandatory classes to improve her skills.

At home Rodjana lived with six people in one house. Her parents were poor farmers who had a hard time paying for their children’s education. Rodjana had three sisters. The scholarship helped her and her family a lot. She used it to pay for her tuition fee, her transportation to school and for her lunch. Without the scholarship, it would have been extremely difficult for her to pursuit her high certificate in accounting.

In 2013, Rodjana finished her internship at Prasat Sub-district Administration Office. She issued tax bills. Her internship helped her a lot to improve her computer skills. She enjoyed her job very much. In 2014, she graduated in Accounting with a grade of 93%.

Since she loved studying so much Rodjana decided to continue her education to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree at Rajamangala University of Technology Isaan. Her ultimate goal was to become a teacher at Prasat Industrial and Community Education College, the school attended herself before.

Recently Rodjana graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting at Rajamangala University of Technology Isaan. According to her plan she is now working as a Planning and Policy Analyst at Prasat Industrial and Community Education College. Rodjana is very happy with her job and salary. She also has a boyfriend who is working as an Appraisal Officer at Viriyah Insurance Company in Chaiyaphum province. They plan to get married soon.

Rodjana only has good memories about Fund Isaan and her sponsor, 3AMB. She knows that she would not be where she is today without the support of 3AMB, without the scholarship, she could never imagine what her life would be. Rodjana offered her support to Fund Isaan in all matters related to our collaboration with Prasat Industrial and Community Education College.
