About Genesis: She comes from a small village about 2.5 hours from the Nicaraguan capital Managua. After she had already studied medicine for a year, applied for the scholarship. Due to the poor financial situation of her family, she could not have continued her studies without support, despite very good performance.
After completing her studies, Génesis would like to work in pediatrics to improve medical care for children, especially in her home village.
In addition to her excellent study results, Genesis is characterized by her great social commitment: she works voluntarily in a public hospital while studying.
