Andrea Milagros's story

Andrea is a young woman who lives with her parents and three siblings. Her mother is a housewife and her father makes a living as a taxi driver.

She is studying Environmental Technology, which she has wanted to study since she was thirteen. Seeing how people pollute the streets, throwing garbage anywhere, she said to herself, "I have to change this". So she investigated what kind of career is associated with environmental pollution, found Engineering but couldn't manage to get in. She kept looking until she found this major, which was recently initiated and she likes it a lot.

This career will benefit her a lot in different aspects of her life. There is going to be a big change and if you want to change you have to start with the place where you live, promoting recycling, giving talks on environmental awareness and having campaigns so children can participate. Her objective is to little by little expand awareness of the environment in people.

She spends 8 hours daily, sometimes 9 hours depending on the subject they are studying. When she is finished studying she would like to work in a project to improve the environment. a project that would generate a great impact on society and have businesses join together with this goal which is: generate consciousness of the social impact. When she completes her degree she feels that her way of thinking, seeing and acting will not be the same. She will look for solutions for any environmental challenge that occurs.

Because it is an expensive degree and her father doesn't generate a lot of income and he also has to support her siblings, she has turned to the support of Kiva so that she can continue her studies and become a professional. This loan will be used to pay her monthly fees at SENATI and her respective courses.

The main dream she has in her life is to successfully complete her studies and for people to know that the world is changing because of bad actions. She wants to create changes in these attitudes, as it is due to a lack of information for people, who aren't conscious of the problem which is: environmental pollution.

Her main obstacle is her family's finances. Her household's income is not very high as her father and her oldest sister are the only ones who work.

By way of thanks for the support that is being offered her she would like to say a few words. "I feel very happy and enthused knowing that I won't have to interrupt my studies. I am glad that there are people who are concerned about education and who decide to support people with limited possibilities. I am very grateful for the support and the opportunity given me to continue with my studies. It is a great help for me and my family. Thank you very much Kiva!
