In My Own Words
My name is José Francisco Sánchez Muñoz. I am 23 years old. I graduated from the Instituto Tecnologico Nacional (INTECNA) in Granada. I proudly belong to the BECA.org family. I heard about the existence of BECA.org through the visit of Mr. Hunchak to Juana Maria Polanco School in where I studied high school. I remember that to get into this organization it was required to fill out a study plan in which I had many difficulties. This was discouraging, and I wanted to quit. I was accepted by the foundation and took "Course One BECA.org" in order to classify for the scholarship. I enjoyed it and met many young people to whom I maintain good friendships to this day. With hard work, dedication and commitment I classified, passing to the second step called "Intensive BECA.org" which were my technical career studies. In September 2012 before ending my career I performed my internship for three months with a company from Managua. They hired me after my internship and very soon I will be completing one year of employment. As an objective I want to keep on studying a university career to strengthen my skills and improve my quality of life. I am really grateful with God and BECA.org for the opportunity, for the trust they placed in me and for the values obtained which helped me to shape me and become what I am. Thanks BECA.org!
