A loan of $400 helped to study within the mechanics program at CampoAlto.


John Sebastian's story

This student is John Sebastián and is enrolled in the car mechanic program. He decided to study within this program because he had always been interested in cars. Although he does not have his own vehicle, he chose to study in order to learn more about them and be able to receive greater income with which he can improve his standard of living. He also decided to study this because of his parents who also like this career track and decided to support him as best as they could.

John has every interest in beginning and completing this program as best as he can, getting the best grades possible in order to have a solid knowledge base and in this way support those who require his support. John wishes to make his parents happy to know that he was an excellent student and that their efforts to support him were not in vain.

John's short term plans are to enter a large and well known business to be able to have his own house. In this way his will return to his parents everything that they have done for him. John is very motivated to begin his advanced education and ever more motivated to know that he is completely content with the program. He is conscious that it is not easy but it is also not impossible because his desire to get ahead is greater than the obstacles that he might face to reach the top of his class. He believes that by setting greater goals, tomorrow his work will be greater for the hurdles that life throws at him.

John hopes to achieve his personal goals with a good job and greater income quickly and fairly. His parents are his greatest influence on him because although neither knows anything about mechanics, they are both very committed to their jobs and have taught him great values including respect, responsbility and passion for what he chooses to do in life. With these role models, John is committed to following their example and dedication to his future work.
