2022 EAL Scholarship Recipient - Meet Olga Golding

by Melita Group on

Hello – my name is Olga Golding, and I am thrilled and thankful to be the first recipient of the Elevate-a-Life scholarship from Melita Group.

Over the course of my journey with Melita, I will share my experiences with you a couple of times a month. I will share my story as a student-mother, as well as updates on my HR internship with Melita.

This is something that I am very thankful for and can’t wait to share with you about this new chapter of my life.

I hope you enjoy it, and that it may inspire others to pursue their goals and dreams no matter what challenges you may be faced with.


So, a little bit about me.

I am a 36-year-old, single mother, with full custody of my daughter Annabel. I am currently pursuing my degree in International Business, but I also have a passion for marketing and HR. I am a transfer student at Cal State Fullerton.

My short-term goal is to earn my degree with honors, and my long-term goal is to become a professional in the newly chosen industry, HR. I am also determined to be able to create a positive impact with my expertise in the business field. I am working towards becoming financially independent to sustain my family and provide a better future for both of us.

My passion in life is traveling. That is when I feel I live my life to my true purpose. I have been to over 30 countries, and Annabel has been to 8 countries with me.

Although life has thrown some obstacles my way, we still manage to embark on some amazing adventures together, even on a much smaller scale.

We love water and do paddle boarding together(well, I paddle, and Annabel navigates the sail, looking for the way with binoculars).

I love life and making the most out of every opportunity and I look forward to sharing more about myself, my family, this amazing new journey, and my learnings with Melita.

Thanks for reading and until next time!
