Johan Camilo
This is Camilo. What Camilo wants is to acquire various skills, making the most of his time and thoroughly exploring different subjects that he's interested in, so he can get into every possible field.
He believes that in today's world it is necessary for a person to have knowledge of multiple areas, because they will always be well-accepted and will be able to tackle any task that they're assigned, not necessarily work-related. This will always bring them new experiences.
His immediate goal is to begin his studies in auto mechanics and get a degree in this field of expertise. This is a subject that he's very interested in, especially in regards to knowing the parts that make up the engines, how they work and how important each one of them is.
From an early age, Camilo has been interested in cars, mechanics and, in general, devices that have to do with manual, electronic or electric movement. Perhaps herein lies the connection to his enjoyment and his penchant for skating, an extreme sport that is a hobby and a passion for him and that brings him a great deal of adrenaline and interest in wheels.
What motivates Camilo is how enthusiastic he gets everytime he thinks about his biggest hobby: skating. His dream is to combine his studies with his hobby. Gradually he begins to ask himself how to get an idea to create a new device or machine that combines his studies and his training with his favorite sport.
In two years, Camilo would like to own his own business repairing vehicles and manufacuring unique accessories that are different from the ordinary ones, luxury and exclusive. That way he'll become well-known and popular in his trade and he'll be able to teach others, and above all he'll provide job opportunities for young people with no experience. Unfortunately, in his country they have limited opportunities, and their energy and especially their creativity need to be put to use.
Nevertheless, in order to get there he has to go through several steps, and that takes practice. Therefore, first he has to start working some place where he'll get experience and ask around about so many well-known and renowned places that are mainly in Bogota, so he can get a job in one of them.
At the moment, the loan would be of great help to Camilo, because his parents would have to pay for his tuition fees. Since he's currently beginning his first semester, he still has two more to go, and each semester the costs would increase.

El es camilo, lo que camilo quiere es adquirir diversos conocimientos, aprovechando al máximo el tiempo, investigando a fondo diferente temas que le interesan y acceder en todas las ramas que le sea posible.
ya que cree que para el mundo actual, es necesario que una persona tenga conocimientos múltiples, pues siempre sera bien visto, que se pueda desempeñar en cualquier función que le sea asignada, no necesariamente laboral, esto siempre llevara a tener nuevas experiencias.
La meta inmediata es iniciar los estudios de mecánica automotriz, formarse en este campo de aprendizaje, pues es un tema que le llama mucho la atención, sobre todo el tema de conocer partes que componen los motores y el funcionamiento e importancia de cada una.
Lo que le gusta a camilo desde temprana edad y le ha interesado el tema de vehículos, las mecánicas y en general artefactos que tengan que ver con movimiento manual, electrónico y eléctrico y tal vez aquí encuentra la relación al gusto y afición al skate, deporte extremo que distrae los días, lo apasiona y lo llevo a sentir gran adrenalina e interés por las ruedas.
Lo que motiva a camilo es que cada vez piensa en la gran afición: el skate, lo entusiasma un sueño y es poder combinar los estudios con su afición, y poco a poco se van formando preguntas, de como tener la idea de crear un nuevo aparato o maquina que convine los estudios y preparaciones con el deporte favorito.
En 2 años a camilo le gustaría tener el propio negocio de arreglo de vehículos y fabricación de accesorios únicos y diferentes a lo común, de lujo y exclusividad, para obtener fama y popularidad en el trabajo, poder enseñar a otros, pero sobre todo darle la oportunidad a jóvenes sin experiencia desafortunada mente en este país, las oportunidades están limitadas para ellos y lo que se debe hacer es aprovechar la energía, pero sobre todo la creatividad que tienen.
sin embargo para llegar a ello hay que pasar por varios pasos y a esto se llega mediante la practica, así que primero debe iniciar trabajando en algún sitio que le de experiencia, indagar sobre tantos lugares famosos y reconocidos que principalmente hay en bogota, para lograr trabajar con alguno de ellos.
En este momento para camilo seria de gran ayuda el subsidio kiva ya que los padres serian los encargados de realizar los pagos de las mensualidades y como el hasta ahora esta empezando el primer semestre aun le falta dos mas para poder terminar y los gastos en cada semestre incrementarían.
