Paola Andrea
This is Paola Andrea. She chose to go into nursing because when she was a kid she wanted to be a nurse. She wanted to help people. One day her grandfather came to the house and was very sick. She worried a lot about his health and started to take care of him, but his illness was very serious and he died. This was when she developed a desire to help people, regardless of their social class, race, or the type of illness they might have. She has an understanding and tolerant personality which has helped her in working toward her dream of being a nurse. She studied nursing at Sena for a semester but had to leave the program for reasons beyond her control. Now she is studying at CampoAlto, where she has been given the opportunity to achieve her dreams as well as financial assistance since her family has limited means.

Paola's mother, Veronica, is 57, and her father, Jaime, is 59. They used to be well off, they had everything, but violence forced them to abandon everything and move to the city of Villavicencio. They started a new life there with their two kids, and the city took them in, providing them with stable work. The whole family worked very hard there and they bought a house which they later sold to support one of the siblings who wanted to enter the police force. He was accepted and given a job in Bogotá so they left Villavicencia where they didn't have income because all of the money had been invested in their son. Paola is 18 years old. She was raised in the city of Villavicencio until she was 11 when they moved to the city of Bogotá. Since then she has been a good student and a responsible, honest, tolerant, respectful, understanding person who wants to get ahead and help her family and the whole world.
