Dayanna shares with us a little bit about her high school and her experience as a Starfish scholar.
Yo me llamo Dayanna Zuñiga Salas. Estudio en el Colegio Dr. Juan Modesto Carbo Noboa del curso 4/2. Soy una señorita aplicada en mis estudios. Yo con mis amigos (Espinoza, Maldonado, Davis, Yagual) somos muy aplicados. Mi colegio es de 2 pisos y pide muchas cosas y cosas que son muy cara. A veces no pido por el temor de perder la beca y despues digo yo mismo “no, si no pido saco 0” y me decido pedirlo. Gracias por su ayuda!
My name is Dayanna Zuñiga Salas. I study in the high school “Dr. Juan Modesto Carbo Noboa” and I am section 4/2. I am a hard-working young lady. My friends (Espinoza, Maldonado, Davis, Yagual) and I are very attentive to our studies. My high school is 2 floors and asks for us to buy a lot of our own materials that are very expensive. Sometimes I don’t want to ask for so much because I don’t want to lose my scholarship but then I tell myself “No, if I don’t ask, I will get a 0” and I decide to ask for it. Thanks for your help!
**Note** In many high schools, students in their last 3 years of high school are required to do internships and/or practicals for which they are required to supply their own, sometimes very expensive materials. Dayanna has done practicals “prácticas” so far in accounting, mechanics and chemistry. Without the help of her scholarship, she would be forced to sit out these classes and receive a 0 for the assignment as she has done in past years.
