Hello, my name is Karina, I live in Chile, currently studying Computer Engineering,I'm asking for funds to go to Mexico to attend a Big Data course in the UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico) in what is for me a once in a lifetime chance to develop and learn about the area that I'm most passionate about. I do my best to use this knowledge and try to help others, last year, for example, I won a contest with a project that tries to help the elderly using technology, so they can take their prescription on time. It's still in development so maybe in the future, you will hear of me again.
I'm also involved in other projects that have won first places! I'm full of ideas for changing lives and helping people this year too and I'm looking forward to starting new projects and continue the current ones, but this trip would also mean a big step forward in learning towards them
So any help, no matter how small it is, can set me one step closer to go to Mexico this July and make a dream true. I know it sounds cliché, but I really think that this opportunity will help me to help others.
