Angie Lizeth
Lizeth is 18 years old and is a student of graphic design for advertising. At night she studies industrial design at another school. She lives with her parents, and she is the oldest of four children. They pay rent, and it has been difficult to help her parents economically because she goes to school both day and night. Her parents pay for her studies. Her goal is to graduate from the "Las Mercedes" institute of higher learning this year and to continue her degree as a professional, taking advantage of the agreement for this. But this doesn't mean that she will leave her night studies since she sees the two degrees as complementary, and this is what she is looking for in terms of professional development.

Another one of her goals is to study English on Saturdays next year. She will graduate very soon as a professional from her two degrees and bring her knowledge into society. Since she isn't working right now she feels a bit bad that she can't help her parents, but she hopes to offer them many wonderful things in the future.

In her free time, she likes to play football, read a good book, cook, or draw. She likes to invent things, and she likes advertising, drawing, using the computer, being creative, imagining things and studying. In the future she will be a professional. Her knowledge will bring her into society and she hopes that at some point the world will be better.
