“I am currently studying Biomedicine with a major in Neuroscience, alongside Diploma of Foreign Languages with a major in Spanish and Latin American studies. After graduation, I plan to attend medical school and hope to become a physician-researcher, focusing on neurodegenerative conditions. Thanks to the generous support of this scholarship, I am one step closer to achieving that goal.”
