"Hi dear family HEDU.org first of all i am so grateful with God for being healthy and alive, also because I am able to share with you a Little bit of my experience at BECA.org.

My name is Eli Acuña I am a 22 years old and I live in Masaya.
My story with the foundation started back in 2016 when I was in high school and I got a brochure this really change my life. I knew that I had the opportunity to achieve my dreams which it was to study a technical career, it made me feel happy. I motivate myself and I was excited to initiate with the process of applying for the scholarship. I even remember that at moment the office was located at ACC. I gave out all my documents and then I had to wait for a phone call everyday praying because I wanted to be one of the lucky ones, after a couple of days one of the coordinators contact me to inform me that I was classified and they had to visit my house.
At that time I had to go through the process of the 6 months called Course One, on which I had to take 3 months of computer course and three more months of social work. During the last three months of social work we had to do different things like cleaning, painting, repairing chairs, etc. it was an unique experience because we were part of a pilot project throughout this time we met different places and good friends.
After we complete the process of the 6 months we had to wait by the end of the year so we could start our studies but before we went to visit some places on which we could study just to have an idea of what we could study.
In 2017 started my studies for nursing assistant at POLISAL-Jinotepe, I graduate in 2018.
I am currently working at SERMESA Hospital-Masaya in the area of ¨Outpatient Care¨.
I am grateful with God for giving me the chance to know about HEDU.org and get the opportunity to study a technical career that I am currently working on, I really thanks to all sponsors for supporting us and open door to our success.
Fight for your dreams…Blessings.
