In My Own Words
September 2012

In 2009 I had the opportunity to hear first about the foundation BECA.org when they visited my high school. I was not sure if I would be able to continue my studies due to the low income of my family.
That day we were provided information about BECA scholarships offered, 

I did not ask any questions.

I remember my high school graduation was a Sunday in November. The next day it was Monday and I accompanied my Mom to MASINFA - one of BECA's partner schools. They gave me all the information I needed.

The support of my family was important and many sacrifices were made.

In 2010 I started my technical career studies in MASINFA.

From that point my life changed completely, 

I met new people and I developed my ideas about what I really wanted in my life, in my future. 

Being in the program has helped me to learn to value punctuality, responsibility, and community support, I am happy to have won the scholarship and most importantly have ended my career as Executive Secretary.

Currently BECA.org Foundation gave me the opportunity to work in the program, where I try to give my best.

It fills me with great satisfaction that my first job is in the same foundation that gave me the opportunity to study my career, I can not find the words to express all the wonderful experiences I have lived within the foundation BECA.org. My life has changed, I am grateful to God, my family and my sponsors. I had the opportunity to meet one of them. Thanks Sarah. 

I have a changed life, because after that my family supported me financially now I can help support them. It feels good to give to a person after you have been supported.

I'm happy for all these blessings that God has gifted.
