In My Own Words
There wouldn´t exist hope if it would not be possible to achieve our goals.
Hello my name is Aracelly del Carmen Martinez, I am a 22 years old. I studied Touristic Administration and hospitality at Masinfa. I live in a small community in Masaya.
I heard about a organization called BECA.org, this organization help young people who can not afford their university, when i knew this organization i was about to graduate from high school at the Juana Maria Polanco College- Las Flores Masaya, by this time BECA.org also interviewed more than 10 guys but just a few of them were chosen.
On the same year we start doing social work with students from elementary school.
My group worked on the same school, i was a hard experience that i will never forget. I put myself on the teacher's shoes, it was for 3 months.
After that i took a 3 months computer course. Also one saturday per month
we did social work, this is one of the requirements to get a scholarship,but it was not too easy, thanks Good i was able to achieve one of my goals which is study a career.
I studied my second option because because what i wanted was veterinary, even though i did not study what i wanted, i learned a lot, i am currently working at Mi Viejo Ranchito restaurant, I have found a new family that teach me many things in the same way as BECA.org.
This achievement was very difficult, i put all my effort. I am very grateful with my parents and coordinators, they cheer me up to never give up.
I am so grateful with BECA.org, because thanks to it, I was able to achieve my goals, I hope they continue helping other people who can not pay a university after high school, for me BECA.org is like an angel, because i never imagine myself studying a career either working in one of the most prestigious restaurants.
I recommend people to look for help at BECA.org to be able to achieve their goals and take advantage today that you're young and there are opportunities to study.
