Dniza Carolain's story

This is Daniza. She is 17 years old and lives with her parents and her sister in the neighbourhood of Puerta al Llano. She has a nine-month-old daughter, for whom she wants to succeed, to offer her the best in life and so that she never has to go without anything.

Her life has never been easy, despite having her parents by her side. Certain circumstances made it difficult for her to continue with her studies. For example, she lost the support of her father after getting pregnant. Her mother works when she can and her sister is studying like Daniza, and has no available resources to help her.

She has always, from a young age, wanted to study pharmacy, as it seems a very interesting degree to her. She knows that with this degree, she will learn more each day. Most importantly, it will allow her to study something similar in the future, as she also dreams of studying nursing. She wants to learn more every day so that her young daughter looks up to her not only as a mother but also as a woman. She wants to be an example to her, so that she learns that despite the fact that her mother got pregnant at such a young age, she did not abandon her chosen studies, rather, she fought each and every day to succeed.

She is very enthusiastic about this degree, which is why she is requesting help from Kiva, because for her, it is important to finish this degree and achieve a better future for her daughter.
