Diego Johan's story

This is Diego, a young worker, good student, and fighter in life. In his childhood, he lived with his whole family, united, which for him was total happiness. As he grew up, everyone began to move, and this was not easy for him, but he was strong.

From there he decided to seek great things in life, such as studying a lot and working very hard to be able to pay for his education. For him, education is fundamental in life, since his parents always advised him to study and prepare himself well to become a great human being in life.

Then he began to work very hard and to study, but he didn't imagine the marvelous things that he found day after day in his classes, since he is able to have the privilege to take this course of study, which is a great gift that he has been given in life, in which he wants to give all the best that he can to be able to finish. The advantage with Kiva will be good, since he doesn't have sufficient resources to cover the bills. He is seeking a thousand ways to be able to achieve the dream that he began. He does not want to abandon his dream due to lack of economic resources, since the desire to study is a marvelous gift, which he has plenty of, and it gives him life on a day to day basis.

He hopes to be better every day, to have the opportunity to become a professional in the future, and to give a better life to his parents, who for him are the greatest treasure in life and for whom he strives to show them that the effort that a human being makes is going to be reflected in the efforts and proposal of new future goals.
