Ingrit Tatiana
Being born the youngest of all her sisters, Ingrit lived with her mother, her sisters, and her nephew. Thanks to God, she never lacked food, and she always had good communication with her family. Her mother was her best friend, although she was not able to spend a lot of time with her.

Her father visited them when he could, and always took care to be a great father and to help his daughters and his wife.

When Ingrit was in 6th grade, her father died of a heart attack. This was a blow to all of them. From this point on, things became more difficult. Her mother had to take charge of all of the household expenses.

Sometime later, the family was able to buy a nice house. This helped them a lot, because the expenses decreased. In 10th grade, Ingrit took the opportunity to get a technical degree from SENA (a public vocational education program). In this program, she developed skills in working with machines to make coats and jackets. She successfully completed this program along with her high school degree.

When Ingrit left school, she had no means to further her education, so she enrolled in a SENA program to learn how to make underwear. She finished this program and also successfully completed an internship.

Taking advantage of her training, Ingrit started working making bathing suits and underwear. Someone wanted to work in her studio, and so she gave notice that she would study at CAMPOALTO (a technical college).

Now Ingrit is studying hotel management, putting in maximum effort on her part, because her mother is paying for her tuition. Her goals include finishing her professional degree, being able to work satisfactorily in her field, and achieving economic stability.
