Scholarship Recipient Thank You Letter

Wilnelia, Since childhood I have always done everything possible to cultivate my values ​​as; Empathy compassion and what it is to help others. It was not until I met the foundation that I realized the true impact that values ​​like these have on a large scale. I greatly admire your initiative to be able to carry out a project in which you can give help and hope to people whose life may be limited. Only a few are willing to help people without expecting anything in return. My experience here at Cimatec has been one full of challenges and sacrifices. The knowledge that you are sponsoring my studies motivates me through all these years not to give up and give the maximum of my academic abilities. Every time I have felt insecurities as a student, to think that a whole Foundation supports my person fills me with so much joy that all those negative thoughts vanish. My future plans include finishing my university plans and doing everything possible to reach the field of medicine. My goal is to be a charitable doctor that promotes in its practice these values ​​that its foundation reflects. I know that nothing will be enough to show how grateful I am to have been awarded a scholarship by the Wilnelia Merced Forsyth Foundation during my studies. That is why at some point in my life I would like to return the favor and have the opportunity to help students like me, who because of their economic status may not be able to fulfill their dreams. I hope that when I graduate, other young people will have the same opportunity that I had to receive an education essential for their professional future.

In September 2017, Hurricane Maria dramatically swept away Puerto Rico's topography as well as people's customs and lifestyles. Willnelia Merced Foundation and Miss World of Puerto Rico are currently joining their efforts in the relief and reconstruction of this enchanting island.
