«I've learned to fight to achieve my goals.»
“I dream of being able to continue my education to become a teacher. To do so, I still have to study an additional seven years. Then, I’ll be able to support my family financially and build our house. I began a business project last year to pay part of my school costs: my goal is to have 100 chickens to have enough resources to finish my studies.
I would like to thank the Becas para las Niñas project which is supporting me in my studies and for all of the lessons I’ve learned which have taught me that I have to fight to achieve my goals.”
