Creative Arts Scholarship Recipient
Mercy is from the Volta region of Ghana namely Accra. She is a graduate student in her second semester studying Social Work. She has the hopes of becoming a licensed social worker who will advocate for the less privilege and children who are disadvantaged. During her search for graduate schools here in the USA, Mercy came across ETSU and was able to make a final decision because of the scholarship opportunities that was available. On campus she is a Diversity Educator and a member of the International Choir where she is a recipient of the Creative Arts Scholarship. Mercy enjoys nature, singing but most of all cooking. When asked about the Creative Arts Scholarship Mercy says "I feel honored to be awarded this scholarship. It encourages me to maintain my work ethic while at ETSU. It really helped me attend school because at this point I felt I wouldn’t be able to afford college education. Not this alone, I enjoy what I do, to maintain the scholarship, that is being part of the choir to encourage others through music. I am really grateful I had the opportunity."
