JesusaJesica Leano-Au (Spring 2021)

Hi my name is Jesusa Jesica Leano-Au. I was born in Manila,Philippines, but now I reside in Honolulu,HawaiI. I am a mom of a 11 year old and also a wife of a (service member), I am currently working at Hickam Airforce Base as a dental assistant.

I choose the dental field as my career path because I wanted a better future for my daughter and to have a change in life as well. I graduated at Hawaii Dental Assisting Academy back in 2018, I have learned a lot of hands on dentistry where I have brought my skills and knowledge at the office I am currently working for and it has helped me grow tremendously into the dental assistant I am today.

AAUW Honolulu grant is bound to help me tremendously with the cost of my certification dental assistant and also for my current review class of certification dental assistant. I am grateful and thankful I was chosen because it will definitely help a lot and also I am not just doing this for myself I am also doing it for my daughter and anyone else out there that is trying there hardest to expand there goals and careers in life.
