Sandra Milena's story

Sandra Milena is 22 years old. Her story is about the loss of a loved one and how to overcome that pain. Many people get over the suffering faster than others and some people don't absorb it. It is easy to remember the things could have been done if that person was still here. Things come to mind like walks, special lunches, and more things that she could have enjoyed with their brilliant company. In her case, her father died of liver cancer. His time was so short that not even the wind succeeded in cooling the tears from that pain. However, she had a goal, a promise to keep of graduating from technical school, to give him that pride even though he knew he would not be there to applaud in the front row when they called her name. That was enough to remember and she realized that although people are not always in front of you, they have not abandoned you, and in fact they are more present than not.

Let them go since they need to be in peace and more than ever they will be waiting with open arms. It is hard to confront a loss of such magnitude as the death of a loved one. Unfortunately the way through life is so short it feels that the time is not enough to do or express all the affection for the people who are loved the most. The loss of a loved one is a fact that cannot be remedied, but there is a choice to maintain a good attitude towards life. It is important that friends are with one to give encouragement to continue and meet the challenge to come.

Sandra thinks about having a prosperous future because she wants to be a technical professional in financial accounting, finish with the best grades, and a high concept that she can defend with an excellent position. She wants to have a prosperous life where she can provide the necessary help to her family. Later, she would like to be a business administrator at a successful company that provides knowledge and is a leader in marketing. Sentimentally, she would like to have a beautiful home. Lastly, she wants to be the owner and boss of a business that provides support to whatever person needs it, ensuring well-being for her health.
