A BIG DREAM OF LOVE AND SERVICE.
Once upon a time there was a young woman named Luisa who finished high school in Bogotá. She longed to study medicine, because in high school she had belonged to a Red Cross group and volunteered in the infirmary at school, taking care of the children when they needed her. Luisa's heart therefore harbored a marvelous dream to serve others through nursing, and she dreamed of being able to work to help the elderly and children as a nurse.
She would like to be an angel in white, and her nurse's uniform represents love and service to others.
Luisa has made a great effort to offer her two little children a better life despite her difficult economic circumstances and the tough challenges she has had to face as a single mother. Luisa would like to finish her nursing program, which she believes offers her a chance to fulfill her dreams, helping many and serving the community.
Luisa has not set aside her dream of becoming a nurse, so she is currently doing everything possible thanks to GOD to work hard and save enough to be able to go to nursing school. Luisa hopes to receive economic assistance, as her salary is not enough to pay the school fees and support her two little children.

UN GRAN SUEÑO DE AMOR Y SERVICIO.
Erase una vez una Joven Que Se Llamaba Luisa termino su Bachillerato en Bogotá al finalizar el estudio del Colegio Luisa tenía el anhelo de estudiar algo de medicina, ya que cuando estaba en el colegio perteneció a un grupo de la cruz roja y ayudaba en las labores de enfermería de la institución atendiendo a los niños cuando la necesitaban y se salía del salón para ayudar; Es así como en el corazón de Luisa se albergaba un gran deseo de servicio a los demás a través de la enfermería y soñaba con poder trabajar en servicio de los ancianos, niños especiales siendo enfermera.
Por esto le gustaría ser como un angelito blanco como es su vestido de enfermera que representa el amor y el servicio por el otro.
Luisa se ha esforzado por sacar a sus dos pequeños hijos a delante a pesar de las adversas circunstancias económicas y de las duras pruebas que ha tenido que atravesar siendo madre cabeza de familia. A Luisa le gustaría terminar su programa en auxiliar de enfermería por que ve la posibilidad de cumplir sus sueños y así ayudar a muchos y servir a la comunidad.
En la actualidad Luisa no ha dejado de lado su sueño de ser enfermera y por eso en este momento está haciendo todo lo posible gracias a DIOS por trabajar duro y ahorrar para poder asistir a una escuela de enfermería, Luisa en la actualidad desea ser ayudada económicamente ya que el pago por su trabajo no es el suficiente para pagar las cuotas de la escuela y mantener a sus dos pequeños hijos.
