Laura Vanesa
Laura Vanessa is 18 years old and the oldest of three siblings. She is in a Nursing Assistant program. She is currently in her third semester and is interning in the San Rafael Clinic. She graduated from secondary education with a business emphasis in 2012.

She lives with her father, her mother, and two siblings, one aged 11 and the other aged 4. Her parents have always impressed upon her the need to work and make her own money. Her father pays for the things they need, and her mother takes care of the home.

Among her standout qualities are studiousness and a passion for helping others, which she feels she can fulfill through nursing.

She needs this loan agreement because her parents helped her with the first two semesters, but now the cost has increased and she has two younger siblings. She doesn't want to stop what she is doing because she likes it and she feels identified with nursing. In addition, she wants to be able to help her parents and her siblings in the future.

For her, nursing brings her closer to others and is very complex work. She will always feel satisfied because she knows that she is helping people and patients who truly need it. She wants to continue studying and knows that with effort, dedication, and vocation, she will achieve it.
