May a success story in the CEACA

My story 

My name is Hevelline and am 25 years old. The CEACa VILA became part of my life when my mother worked in the Nursery Happy Duckling, who like many of the mothers of the community of Monkey Hill, did not leave their children. I was a student and I began to attend daycare when I was two months old. That is very small. Once I was at the age of going to school, I came out of the nursery able to read and write my name. CEACA had for children and young people what they already did in school, but also had poultry, cultural tours and camp that I attended for several years. Already I have completed thirteen courses that were very important to me as I learned to scrap what we can do several things with the simple act of making the recycling of waste for example, Silk Screen, Tapestry and Informatics. When I was seventeen, I returned to CAECA for Ducklings Nursery happy, and there was my first professional job when I actually did a full course of informatics of 1 year and 6 months. I graduated Junior Technical Computing, this time I studied in the morning. I was a senior in high school and worked as an intern in the afternoon and night was day care informatics course in another neighborhood. I no longer lived in the community. I found another opportunity when it came to college through an agreement with the CAECA college scholarship. I had the opportunity to do it because I had this desire, but if it were not for this opportunity I might not have done it. Today I am very happy and fulfilled, for I am a person who CAECA VILA made a difference and changed the course of my life story. I think this, that no matter if my victory is triumphant in the future, the most important thing is to dedicate myself and do the best here and now, because the world gives way to who know where they want to go. I am very proud to say that I am a Computer Educator of the CAECA VILA.
