I participated as a volunteer in the summer camp of UNIDOS, an association that promotes integration of people with disabilities in society.
I must say, that I first thought that I was going to have a lot of trouble teaching them how to behave in public, how to follow instructions or just how to socialize.
We sure exchanged experiences; I helped them and their families to lose fear and treat them as humans, which they are. I helped some of them to become more outgoing, I encouraged them to dance, to play, to integrate with all of us. I helped them to develop more sense of order and discipline, as well as following instructions.
But the truth is, what I learned from them, was much more than what I could have taught them.

Why should I win this scholarship?
I am a passionate student who loves to give everything of herself in whatever she does. I am really excited of having the opportunity of studying my degree at Milan, a city full of art and culture. I'm sure that I can grow a lot with this experience, and that I will take everything of it to improve myself in a personal and professional level. My family and I are making an effort for me to have the opportunity of studying abroad. We are an average family in Mexico, my mom has recently lost her job and we appreciate any type of help. By having this scholarship, we could relieve some stress about the money subject and enjoy better together this experience.
