My main motivation to apply for this scholarship is because my goal is to work in a health institution creating and overseeing health programs that will help to improve the quality of life of people, KGSP will provide me the opportunity to study a bachelor´s degree which is not currently available in my country in universities with a high level of education and programs of study that would help me to fulfill my goal also through this program will encourage me to culture of other countries through the coexistence with other students, but also will allow me to investigate the main health problems in other countries, in addition I will be able to learn about the health system in South Korea and their similarities and differences with other health systems, this will help me to create better health programs that are tailored according to the needs of the population.
My family consists of four persons including me, my mother who studied chemistry in food and currently works as a supervisor, my grandfather who worked in a mechanical workshop and is currently retired and my grandmother is a housewife. Since I was a kid my family has always taught me the importance of education, especially because despite the fact that my grandparents struggled because of money they always made sure to give their daughters a better education.My mother has especially contributed to my growth as a person who can accept the challenges, adapt to change, competitive, dedicated to her job and accept the responsibilities.
My interest I science grow because my mom used to tell me about her job which motivated me to participate in science fairs when I was in elementary and middle school. I completed my studies at the National Preparatory School No 5 in the area of biological sciences, chemical and health.
One significant experience I had was when I participated in a summer camp, during this time I had the opportunity to meet a lot of students from Latin America and Asia, however at the beginning it was really hard for me to speak with the other students and thus to participate in the activities, but my friend from Ecuador helped me to gain confidence in myself to talk to other students despite the fact that some of them didn´t speak Spanish or English thanks to this I was able to step out of my comfort zone and learn more about other cultures. The most significant experience that I had was when I had the opportunity to attend classes on public health and health promotion, due to this classes I became interested in the health system in Mexico and the main health problems in my country and how they could be improved through health promotion and health education programs, during this time I was able to work in a report the prevention of complications during pregnancy through the control of prenatal consultations, also I participated in informative talks about prevention of breast and cervical cancer as well as vaccination campaigns in a community. I would like to mention that a person that marked a change in my life was a surgery professor that inspired me to take challenges to grow in the professional field and as a person, but also encouraged me to become a leader and to work in a team.
I have participated in extracurricular activities such as recycling contest, Artistic Festival of Histology, Contest of teaching models in embryology, the festival of teaching models in logic, I was also enrolled in a photography club and painting club and participated in painting and photography exhibitions.
