“A very difficult experience for me was: I didn’t have school supplies nor a uniform when I went to school to enroll for the first time. I felt bad, but then I thought that school supplies weren’t that important but that my interest in studying motivated me to continue progressing and not be defeated by the challenge.

I study because I want to help my little brother and my mother when I am older. The challenges [in my life] help me to be more positive and to love studying because education is the best inheritance that our Father gave us, and it is the best opportunity that we have in life that everyone should take advantage of.

When I graduate, my desire is to work as a nurse…and maintain family unity where peace and love reign. [My dream] for my community is to support them through knowledge and to offer them medical help, and for everyone else, is to teach them humility and the desire to overcome.”
