Angela Maria's story

Angela Maria is a 24-year-old young woman who was born in La Paz, Bolivia. On the weekends she works, helping her mother run the restaurant they have in the city of Oruro. She graduated with a degree in International Trade with the support of her family, but above all from her father, who is a public transportation driver. Now she got an education loan to complete her university studies with a Masters degree in International Trade and Logistics so that she can be more competitive in the job market and have options for better job opportunities with the new knowledge she has acquired. Her dream is to be able to give back to her father with all of the effort he gave her so that she could be an important professional. She also wants employment that allows her to support the country with her knowledge and to be able to continuously get ahead. She feels that society has fallen into a conformist pattern that should be overcome each and everyday by enterprising people. She also want to thank all of the people who have given her the opportunity to acquire this new knowledge and for giving her their support.
