Maria Del Pilar's story

This is María del Pilar, the youngest of two sisters. Throughout her entire schooling, she attended a very good school where she met great friends and classmates. She's currently 19 years old and studying financial accounting. She studies in an institution where she has obtained a great deal of knowledge which she never thought she could grasp. She has also met several friendly people, and the teachers are very good and friendly. She likes numbers, so that's why she chose this career. She hopes to someday get a degree in accounting. She enjoys talking to friends and practicing sports such as soccer, volleyball, running and tennis. She likes the colors blue, red and green. She greatly enjoys spending most of her time with her parents and her sister, going for a stroll, playing games, laughing and talking. Later on, these become the most beautiful memories she could have. She likes to eat chips, candy and ice cream. She enjoys eating a lot of junk food rather than prepared meals. Also, she hates vegetables because she thinks they don't taste good, and she'd rather have chicken and pasta. Once she finishes studying accounting, she hopes to travel to a lot of countries in order to put what she learned to practice in these locations. She also hopes to learn more about each country every day, and make her mark. At age 30 she hopes to own a house where she can live with her family which will be comprised of a husband and two children, a boy and a girl. She'll provide them with the best possible education and teach them how to appreciate everything they have and own, because in order to get ahead it's important to never forget the past. She'll teach them to respect and love their family. She hopes to be "very, very, so very happy in my entire remaining life".
