I was so excited to be one of the selected students awarded with the JUVE Becas (2009) and received this economic help for my education. Just a month ago I received my Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice. I felt proud of being not just an Ecuadorian immigrant but also a Hispanic student who even didn’t have the same opportunities as the other students, but still I graduated with high honors “magna cum laude”. Besides that I was considered one of the honor students in Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. I have achieved one more of my goals, but i am not finished yet. I still have to work on my other goals.

I have not been in touch with Juventud Ecuatoriana because of my job. However, I really apreciated the scholarship that they awarded me last year. This amount of money received helped me to buy all my books for my last semester and pay one of my summer classes. My graduation from a two-year college was dedicated to my parents, to my sisters and to the organization which helped me to continue my education no matter what! As I mentioned before, my dreams are not completely realized. My next step will be to reach my Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. It is going to take me two more years. However, I’m very optimistic that I will make it. I hope one day I could give all the help that Juventud Ecuatoriana has given me, and help other to realize their dreams as well.
Thanks a lot for your support to the Ecuadorian people.
