During this year, I have been studying for 2 of the last semesters of my college degree, in which professional internships and projects are already required to help me have the good training that I require to be able to give the best care to my patients. The support of The Gibson Soto Foundation has been essential for me since if it were not for the scholarship they offer me, I would not have the possibility of studying, paying rent, meals, school transportation, school supplies, services, etc. and freeing my internships despite being paid, because I would have to look for a job that fits in with my school schedules, which are difficult as I have school schedules in the morning and afternoon on some days, thanks to these internships I have learned to treat patients, about the nutritional management that they must already put into practice and thanks to the human development courses I have been able to plan my community project and carry it out this month.
I have also learned a lot about project development, which has helped me achieve good results for students who require greater planning and organization. Also, thanks to this scholarship, I can be close to my family on some weekends and important dates because I can now use my salary for my personal expenses, such as transportation fare to my home, some personal items that I require, etc. When I was a child, I always dreamed of studying a career, however, I saw it as something impossible due to the area in which I lived, and I did not like the careers that were offered near my municipality. Since I started high school, my goal has always been clear. I would study a career that I would like. Close to finishing high school, I realized that I really liked the area of health, and I looked for related careers. I fell in love with nutrition in the preparatory and the first semester of the degree. It opened a very broad panorama, and thanks to The Gibson Soto Foundation, I was able to continue studying even in a pandemic. These two semesters that have passed, I have liked too much, and I have learned too much.
Mainly, I fulfilled one of my dreams, which was to care for patients in a good hospital, and this semester I achieved it. I also learned about community nutrition and the development of community projects by doing a course in the summer, which would not have been possible without the support of The Top in housing and human development. Thanks to various courses, I also learned about my economy, self-defense, and first aid, which I believe is essential in the education of a student who is about to enter the labor system of this country and that we are part of a society to which we are going. to be prepared to do our bit for the benefit of our communities and country. I am one semester away from finishing my degree, and I will always be grateful to The Gibson Soto Foundation for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams and fight for my goals in this life.
