THE Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (Owwa) 7 conducted a personality enhancement training for its scholars in Cebu Province at The Well Hotel on F. Ramos St., Cebu City last April 22.
A total of 51 Owwa scholars from Cebu attended the training.
As the agency’s learning support mechanism for its scholars, the training aims to help them understand their personality as a key to identify what needs to be improved, as well as for the scholars to do more and be more in the pursuit of their dreams.
The training gave the scholars an opportunity to develop among them the spirit of camaraderie as they build relationship with their fellow scholars.
Through the training, Owwa 7 also wanted to further enhance the academic progress of all scholars under the Education for Development Scholarship Program, OFW Dependents Scholarship Program, Congressional Migrant Workers Scholarship Program, and Education and Livelihood Assistance Program.
In her welcome address, Owwa 7 Officer-in-Charge Mae D. Codilla thanked the scholars for attending the training.
The training featured Kevin Johnrey Sosas, a former EDSP scholar who finished a Bachelor of Science in Psychology, as a speaker. He already has experiences as a facilitator in teambuilding, leadership, personality and values enhancement trainings.
Sosas discussed the transactional analysis method where the scholars learned the three ego states of a person: parent, adult and child. The three ego states served as the basis in identifying a person’s personality based on his/her interactions.
OWWA 7 former scholars also gave short messages of inspiration.
Maria Fe Rapada, former EDSP scholar and now a licensed special education teacher, encouraged the scholars to continue pursuing their goals and make the most of their scholarship since not everyone can avail themselves of such privilege.
Dexter Perral, also a former EDSP scholar who ranked fourth in the recent national architect licensure examination, also encouraged the scholars to believe in themselves, to always do their best and avoid setting a target to avoid too much pressure because “success is always sweeter when it’s not expected.”
Prizes were given to the most punctual participant, the most cooperative participant and the participant who stood out during the training.
