Scholarship Spotlight: Gerardo (Hacienda Vieja)

Age: 10 years old

How do you feel about having a scholarship?

I feel very satisfied to have it. I help my family, and with it, they bought me: sneakers, Corn Flakes, and milk to be able to eat every morning before going to school.

Before the scholarship, was it easy or hard to study?

It was very hard because I didn’t have sneakers and I didn’t eat every morning because I didn’t have the scholarship and I only took $0.50 to school.

How and in what [ways] has your life changed because of having a scholarship?

My life has changed a lot because before, I didn’t have a scholarship and [now] I have helped my family and myself a lot. My life has changed a lot.

¿Cómo se siente de tener una beca de estudio?

Me siento muy satisfecho de tenerla, ayudo a mi familia y con eso me compraron: zapatos deportivos, corn flake y leche para estar comiendo todas las mañanas antes de irme para la escuela.

¿Antes de la beca era fácil o difícil estudiar?

Era muy difícil porque no tenía zapatos deportivos y no comía todas las mañanas porque no tenía la beca y solo llevaba $0.50 a la escuela.

Me ha cambiado mucho la vida porque antes no tenía una beca y he ayudado mucho a mi familia y a mí mismo. Me ha cambiado mucho la vida.
