Anyela Daniela's story

This is Anyela Daniela. She wants to tell you when she started to feel motivated to start this career.

It all started when she was six or seven years old, more or less, when she finished kindergarten. He mother always cultivated her creativity. Through this ability, she developed a marvelous passion for drawing. She has had that passion for a long time, and she it continues to be one of her passions. As the years passed, she lived very happily with a united family in a healthy atmosphere.

Her parents married when they were very young, and then they did not wait to have children. They had five children, and she is, at 18 years of age, the middle child. Her father always gave them the best, and she did not lack for anything. She lived in a world of luxuries. However, she did not have what is the most important, an understanding father. In time, the breach between them got bigger, to the point of dividing the family. Now, only the mother and the siblings were getting ahead. The father disappeared for one year. As much as she could, she started to rise from the depths. She grew and started to reflect upon her father’s absence. The sisters started to have all types of problems. They had to change cities, but her mother’s health deteriorated. That is why they returned to Bogota.

Her brother started to have serious problems. Because of this, she decided to study comprehensive early childhood care. As she came to the end of the second semester, she got sick. She was in bed for two months, and her health was deteriorating. After a long period of one year, her parents decided to collaborate in order to be able to pay for the semester. However, before she started, she was working in a kindergarten for three months, which left her exhausted. After a time, her mother left with her sister for another city in order to have surgery for her health.

She now lives with her father’s sister, who is not able to help her pay for the semester. That is why she is requesting help from Kiva so that she is finally able to fulfill the dream that she left halfway through due to health problems.

Her plan is to work with a vulnerable population in order to be able to provide, through experience and education, a new model. She wants to do this so that they see and desire a change, like she is doing through her studies. She wants to show them a different reality that is far from what they are living. She wants to fill the emotional voids, to treat conflicts at their root, and to give them an effective and lasting solution.

She knows that it is not changing the world, but it is contributing to the physical, emotional, and spiritual growth of those who most need it. This can be a reality for those that need it.
