Hi there! My name is Jakob Woo-Ming. I am currently a fourth year Media Studies major and Sociology minor at California State University San Marcos. I am entering my final year, and this will be my fifth year with Circle K International and Kiwanis. And this year, I have the honor of being awarded the Pete and Dianne Horton Scholarship in 2019!
Circle K and Kiwanis gave me opportunities that I never had before. Serving on club board and the divisional level taught me cooperation skills and helped me develop my self-confidence. I developed a love for leadership in my time at Circle K, and I don’t know where I would be without it.
Because of my scholarship, I can afford to attend another semester with more financial freedom. When I found out I was awarded this scholarship, I felt much more motivated to finish my degree! I feel much more motivated to finish my degree strong and make the most of my time at California State University San Marcos!
Receiving this scholarship reminded me that my time in Kiwanis matters. It represents what I’ve learned and experienced from my Kiwanis journey so far. All of my hard work dedicating myself to service, leadership, and the realization mankind’s potential paid off.
Thank you, CNH!
