About

Milena was born in Santo Domingo de los Colorados, but the family moved to Quito shortly afterwards. She is the youngest member of the family. She likes studying and has found it difficult not having face-to-face lessons during the pandemic. She has particularly missed the dance classes and presentations wearing traditional Ecuadorian dress, which the school organised.

I really like the school where I'm studying. It's sometimes a bit difficult, but I love learning new things. I like the academic subjects, as they are most challenging. I'm very happy that I can keep on studying thanks to The School Fund. Thank you for all your support with my studies and for helping me grow as a person. Thank you, The School Fund!
I am pleased it is the end of the year at school and that the summer holidays have arrived. I think it is good to have time to relax before the new school year starts. This year the summer holiday is shorter than usual but anyway I will enjoy it. Thank you.
Thank you to everyone who is helping me. This is my second year in the Condor Trust and I'm really enjoying being able to study in the classroom again. Without your support my mum wouldn't have been able to buy my school uniform. Thank you very much.
Getting a scholarship has been a great opportunity for me, so I can keep on advancing with my studies and as a person.

It's been a bit difficult finding my feet at school because the standard is higher than I was used to, but I really like the school. At the moment I'm studying at home, but I should return to face-to-face lessons next week. I love the classrooms and facilities and the way they teach us at school. All this is possible thanks to you who've given me the opportunity for a better education. Thank you!

    I have experience planting vegetables because my parents do that. Also, we have a garden at our home. Therefore, that is experience I have had in life. Apart from that experience, I also had a difficult experience when I failed my geography exam. That enabled me to learn how to cooperate with other students. I was so proud of myself when I performed well in my national exam. The memorable and happiest moment in my life will be when I reach my dream of being pilot. I will be so happy. My biggest dream is to be a pilot. I will get there through studying hard in physics, geography, and mathematics. After reaching my dream, I will help my parents to modify their cultivation system and to become professional farmers. From there they can expand the area of cultivation into a large plantation. Once I get a chance to have the power to change my country, I will build many airports in each region and some districts. This will help in the flexibility of transportation in my country.

    Experiences in my life are when I failed my examination during primary education and also when my parents failed to pay food for me. My difficult experiences in my life are when my parents have insufficient enough money to pay for all my basic needs at school such as food and other school contributions. The thing that makes me feel so proud of myself is when I succeeded in joining O-level education. This makes me feel that I will, I must, I can do everything. The most memorable and happiest thing in my life will be to reach my dream of being a doctor general so as I can help other people in society. My future dream is to be a GOOD surgical doctor. After me reaching my dream, I will give back help to my society and family, but also to WEF. I need to work hard upon reaching my dream in my life. Once I get chance to have power of changing anything in country, I will improve the education system by converting science subjects from theory to practical. In most of our schools, they teach science subjects mostly theoretically. I will start from there because as we know education is the key to every success in our people.

    Notable experiences in my life are, first, passing my standard seven examination and, second, entering secondary school. My most difficult experience was when I started to learn English. I have learned that if you want to do something, you have to work hard. I felt proud was when I entered secondary school. My most memorable and happiest thoughts are from when I celebrated at my birthday party. My dream is to be an electrical engineer. I will get there through studying hard and doing well in science subjects. If I had the power to change my country, I would like to improve the electricity supply especially in rural areas because there are shortages of electric power.
