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.

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!
