Claudia Mariel's story

Claudia Mariel is studying architecture. She is applying for a loan that she will use to cover college expenses. Here is her story: "My name is Claudia and I am 17-years old. I was born in the city of Santo Domingo and still live there with my parents and sister. My mother is a teacher and my father is currently unemployed. I just started studying architecture at Pedro Henriquez Ureña National University (UNPHU). I chose architecture because I've wanted to be an architect for as long as I can remember and I'm fascinated by everything connected to building and design. I'm applying for a loan because my parents can't afford my college expenses. My father has been unemployed for some time and my mother has to support all of us. If I don't receive this loan, I won't be able to continue my studies. My academic goals are, one, to graduate with honors and, two, to become a successful architect. I hope to be successful enough professionally to repay my parents for everything that they have done for me and my brothers and sisters.".
