Sandra's story

Sandra, 18, was born in the city of El Alto in the department of La Paz, and currently lives in Santa Cruz with her sister's family. She commented the hardest part was to leave her parents, because she misses home and is worried about not being near her parents to help them. Though, Sandra understands that making this decision means she can get a good professional education, grows as a person, and more work opportunities. In this way she'll be able to help her family financially and give them a better quality of life. Her greatest motivation is to fulfill her parents dream which is to see their daughters to become professionals. Her parents weren't able to finish high school. Sandra decided to study commercial engineering because she thinks that the knowledge she'll acquire will allow her to get a good job in a company or start her own business. She thinks what makes her different from others is her big desire to improve herself, because she has the support of her family as a motivation to get ahead. Sandra's very grateful to the program and to those people who had faith in her and are giving her the chance to be a professional. In this way she can realize the dreams she wants so much.
