Lizeth Maribel's story

Lizeth Maribel is one of seven siblings. She lives alone without her family. Her desire for self-improvement is huge. Despite her age she thinks it's never too late to begin. She never had the opportunity to begin her professional studies because of financial difficulties and because her family always came first. If she had studied before, her quality of life and her family's would be better now. She doesn't have the support of third parties to realize her dream. With a lot of effort she was able to get the money for her first semester. It was difficult for her to pay for the second semester, however, so she's looking for financial help to continue her program and be a benefit to society. Lizeth Maribel pays for her housing, food, clothing, and transportation with her salary, and she helps her family financially. She's a very responsible, dedicated, honorable, and hardworking person with many values that make her a great person worthy of an opportunity to get ahead in life. She has big plans for achieving her dreams and thinks this is a good place to start. She had never been as happy as when she started her academic program. Every minute of learning is unique and valuable for her. Every piece of knowledge is an opportunity to help someone else like herself; it's one more step on the ladder to the goal of her dreams. Lizeth Maribel sees not only herself at the top of the ladder, she sees her family and her siblings with her; they're the people she wants to get ahead for a better future and quality of life. She wants to be able to look back and know that every effort was worth it, not only for her own dreams but also for the people in her life history. She's not losing faith or hope because to win it's enough to persevere. For all these reasons she believes she deserves the opportunity to get support to continue her studies in the field of pharmacy.
