Maira Alejandra's story

Her name is Maira Alejandra, and she wants to talk about her motivation, her interest and purpose for entering this career which she feels very committed to. Studying something that you enjoy is very significant because it allows you to improve yourself in a way that you can enjoy. Oral health is the field in which she would like to delve into to reach her goals and add it to her achievements. Her goal is to gain knowledge through this institution and put it into practice, offering a quality service where she can satisfy the needs of people.

She believes that every process is a new stage for whatever person, and in this long process, family support is fundamental as it motivates and increases expectations for a better future. Wanting to improve yourself can lead to adversity as not everyone has the financial security necessary. However, there are institutions and organizations that through partnerships like this one with Kiva, can make it easier, and provide opportunities for self-improvement, since not everyone has the resources to complete their education.

In this case, she does not have the resources to finish her education as the monthly fees are fairly expensive. For her, it would be beneficial if part of her semester's tuition was subsidized.
