Hello everyone, my name is Laura, I am currently a graduate of the Guadalupe Musalem A.C. Fund. I am from a community that is about two hours from the city of Oaxaca, with less than five thousand inhabitants.
For me it is a pleasure to be able to share that I passed my admission exam to study medicine at the Benito Juárez Autonomous University of Oaxaca. Entering this career is extremely difficult, so I am very happy to have been accepted and I want to share that happiness with you.
Being a fellow of the Fund has been quite an adventure, because during this time I felt accompanied by great women who in one way or another contributed to my personal and academic growth. While I received academic support, we worked on other issues related to the empowerment of women, knowledge of our rights, and areas of opportunity. I can also say with complete certainty that by being a fellow of the Guadalupe Musalem Fund, I was able to create a second home and a safe place to learn and grow.
Throughout all this time, it has been incredible for me to discover people who are willing to help other women to complete their studies successfully. So I am very happy and proud to have the opportunity to continue studying and pursue a university career. If all goes well, when I finish my degree as a general practitioner, I hope to have the possibility to study a specialty in dermatology, but for now I want to enjoy the process of being a young university student.
I am infinitely grateful for your support of the Guadalupe Musalem Fund, as it allows us to continue with our dreams and improve our future. Without a doubt, you are also part of a great change in my life.
