    Give ME a Chance

    English/ Español


    I am Michelle Garcia and I´m 19 years old, in August I will start my second year of study at United World Colleges in Wales. I arrived at UWC after competing for a year against a thousand applicants, when I managed to classify and apply for a scholarship for corrupted reasons my national committee (El Salvador) stole the money of my scholarship. My parents with great effort and loans managed to pay my first year, but it is impossible for them to pay the second year. I have tried to ask for help from many companies in my country, but many consider education as something superficial. This year I would graduate, but if I fail to cover the amount to pay on August 15th 2018 I will not be able to return Wales.


    Soy Michelle Garcia y tengo 19 años, en agosto empezaré mi segundo año de estudio en United World Colleges en Gales. Yo quede en UWC después de concursar por un año contra mil aplicantes, al lograr clasificar y ingresar aplique por una beca, pero por razones corruptas de mi comité nacional (El Salvador) el dinero de mi beca fue robado. Mis padres con gran esfuerzo y prestamos lograron pagar mi primer año, pero les es imposible pagar el segundo año. He tratado de pedir ayuda a muchos lugares en mi país, pero muchos consideran la educación como algo superficial. Este año me graduaría, pero si no logro cubrir el monto a pagar en Agosto 15 de 2018 no lograré regresar Gales.

    A Little about me / Un poco sobre mí

    I was born in El Salvador, not many people know about my country and if they do it´s because of corruption and high rate of violence. My family is not perfect, but with God and effort we manage to get ahead. Since I was little I grew up in the city and the town which has taught me a lot. Since I was little I was lucky to be considered a talented girl since I excelled in the educational areas. I always dreamed of leaving the country and achieving more, because in El Salvador education is not the best and I have always wanted to change the situation of my family and all the Salvadoran people, so I decided to be self-taught. After achieving outstanding grades and many hours of volunteering I managed to enter UWC because of my way of thinking and my desire to change the world. However, because lifestruggles I am limited to continue my dream.

    Yo nací en El Salvador, no mucha gente sabe sobre mi país y si lo conocen es por su corrupción y alto índice de violencia. Mi familia no es perfecta, pero con Dios y esfuerzo logramos salir adelante. Desde pequeña me crie en la ciudad y en el pueblo lo que me ha dado muchas enseñanzas. Desde pequeña tuve la suerte de ser considerada una niña talento ya que sobresalía en las áreas educacionales. Siempre soñaba salir del país y lograr más, ya que en El Salvador la educación no es la mejor y yo siempre he querido cambiar la situación de mi familia y todo el pueblo salvadoreño, por lo que decidí ser autodidacta. Logrando notas sobresalientes y muchas horas de voluntariado logre entrar a UWC por mi forma de pensar y mis ganas de cambiar el mundo. Sin embargo, por cosas de la vida me veo limitada a continuar mi sueño.

      I´m a true shapeshifter if that makes sense. I tend to be curious, communicative and a comedic that is trying to blaze the new trails of this world. Peple think I´m naive because Ican see the good even on a 40 FT fire-breathing monster, but I think that is just my way to be happy
