Stephanie's story

Stephanie is a 30 year old woman who studied dental mechanics in the University of Cartago, province of Costa Rica. Now she is married and has a one year old son. She worked as an intern in the Calderón Guardia Hospital and now her mom has given her the opportunity to build a small laboratory in the front part of the house. There she will be able to work making prostheses and other devices that are used in dental correction and dental health, which she will sell to dentists and orthodontists.

In this way she will be able to further develop her profession in a more stable way to have better income and later on be able to obtain another degree. Stephanie is a woman who has fought to succeed and wants to pass this on to her small son, giving him an example that women can be many things, as people, woman and professionals.
