This beautiful lady is Diana. Diana graduated this summer with a degree in Business Administration and with no graduation ceremony, fanfare, or celebrations in the midst of a pandemic. Her road to success has not been easy, but she is one of the most determined people I ever known and she did not let anything stop her.
In the evenings, after school, she and her husband, along with some other family members were running a food delivery service from their home for extra income. When the pandemic hit, Diana and Alejandro quickly transformed this business into a service. They have sought out the people who are most in need, the elderly, single mothers, people who are neglected and have no help, and they have supplied them with necessities for survival: food, diapers, formula, medication and hope. I promise that the stories would make you cry. Her sponsors and other generous, caring people continue to donate so that we can send funds to help those hit the hardest by Covid and the economic disaster that it has caused. When she began this, she sent us a breakdown of expenses and basically a business plan. She also sends us photos of the recipients, which of course we don't share for privacy reasons.
When Diana joined our program, she told us, " "In my family I am the only person that has finished high school and this is part of my motivation to keep studying along with those who have encouraged me to continue my studies. I want to be a professional woman, useful in society and able to develop in any professional position in my work, and more than anything to be my father’s biggest pride."
Not only did Diana complete her degree in an accelerated program, but she also had a beautiful baby boy and did not skip a beat. I'd say she's made not only her father proud, but every one of her sponsors, as well. I could not be more proud of Diana and Alejandro and the way that they have stepped up to become leaders and helpers of their community. Diana often tells me that it was a really tiring day, but she feels satisfied and blessed to be able to help. I think Diana is a true hero and a role model and we are so incredibly proud to have her in our Scholarship Program Family.
