Ingrid Katherin's story

Her name is Ingrid, and she lives with her mother. She works during the week and cares for a 4-year old boy with disabilities, and studies during the weekends. Her sister Zharick is a secondary school student, in the seventh grade. The three of them live together. Her mother works to support the three of them and for the upkeep of the house.

Since a young age, she has been very interactive, creative and extravagant. Her hobbies are singing and music, although she doesn't engage much in them due to a lack of time and money. They require a lot of practice and dedication.

Her short-term goals are to finish her studies with good grades so that she can have better possibilities to study at a university or get a job thanks to the opportunity to enroll in a technical training program. She would also like to continue helping her mother at home and her sister with her studies. Her long-term goals are to finish university, learn another language, have some stability with regards to work and money, help her mother out as much as she can, and to be able to travel and know more about what the future holds.

Thank you for taking the time to hear a little about her life and what she wants to do. Thank you also for offering her the opportunity. As the wise saying goes, "an education is never a waste," and you are allowing her studies to be part of her future stability.
