Learning about God’s great love through Ewha
For alumna Oh Hye-sook, Ewha represents her spiritual home and a proud part of her background. “I became a doctor through Ewha, which allowed me to lead a meaningful and committed life as a Christian doctor. Everything that I own belongs to God, and I pray that I can continue to serve Him well as a good steward to the end of my days.” Alumna Oh Hye-sook emphasized that everyone has a responsibility to share regardless of how much they have. “Jesus was deeply grateful for two measly copper coins given by a widow. Even if we don’t have much to give, it’s important to give with sincerity. My life, my time, my possessions, and my talents all belong to the Lord, and I am only temporarily entrusted with my possessions. That’s why I think we have to use these things in the right way for the sake of the Lord.”
Alumna Oh has been an active fundraiser for the Ewha Medical Center. “I always support the rise and development of Ewha. I want the school and hospital to be managed successfully based on the school’s founding spirit.” She also stressed the importance of an altruistic and happy life for Ewha students. “I hope that Ewha students can lead a happy, meaningful life and be thankful for everything. The happiest life is a life of sharing your heart, talents, and possessions. Even if you’re facing hardships today, dream big and become someone who can contribute to the nation and society.”
