Hello! I'm Carla Gil, I'm 18 years old and I live in Caracas, Venezuela.
Since i was a child dentistry has been my dream career. After graduating from School I decided to apply for a place to study dentistry at the university. I made a 6-month a preparatory grade where you had to dispute against 150 people, from there they would choose only the 45 students with the best averages. After 6 months of hard work and a lot of effort they selected me to apply for one of those 45 places to study dentistry at Santa Maria University here in Caracas.
My mother was the economic support of my family, she died when I was 13 years old, a product of a colon cancer that became a very advanced stage; and My dad only can cover the basic expenses of my house. I started working to save and be able to buy the materials that they ask me for the study but due to the current economic and humanitarian crisis that is experienced in my country, my pay is equivalent to 40$ that only reach me to cover my personal expenses and help a little in my house.
Unfortunately I do not have the resources to be able to afford the materials for the practices throughout the career and on which I depend 100% to study.
My mom taught me to never give up on everything that I propose in life and I know that one of the best ways to honor her for it would become a successful professional in what i love.
Your support would help me to be one step closer to fulfilling my dream. I'll be very grateful with any amount you can help me with.Thanks for taking the time to read my story.
