Ehkalu Sein is a proud first-generation college student. She studies Social Work at St. Cloud State University and is minoring in Human Relations. She is expected to graduate in December of 2020. Her education and experience have always focused on her passion for working with children and families. It has always been her passion to work with the refugee/immigrant population because of her experience as being one of them. She is transitioning to her position as Family Assister after serving as our Bachelor of Social Work Intern during Fall 2020. Ehkalu stated, “It is not enough to be compassionate. You must act, and I am ready to help families to get the best out of their journey in settling in the United States.”

Ehkalu loves going on road trips with friends, even if it’s a short one. She enjoys doing outdoor activities such as hiking, canoeing, biking, and going for walks. She loves all kinds of food, but for her, nothing can beat rice and nya u htee (fish paste). Ehkalu says, “A fun fact about me is I either have fun all day, or I hibernate all year.”

One of her biggest dreams is to work with the United Nations one day and specifically with UNICEF. To explain, Ehkalu shares a quote from Nelson Mandela which says, “children are our greatest treasure. They are our future”.
