Story

Good morning everyone,

Dear friends who are giving me their precious time by clicking on my story,

My name is Alvaro Hernández from El Salvador, I am 27 years old and I am an Industrial Engineer, graduated in 2017 from the University of El Salvador. I currently live in the capital of my country, working in a technology company in the textile sector where I put my technical knowledge in engineering to the test.

I'm always interested in continuing my studies and I thought about doing a master's degree, so I started looking for options.

Starting my master's degree

In this way I discovered the offers of the Universidad Ibero Americana de México and the opportunity to study a Master's Degree in Industrial Engineering. It caught my attention and thank God the FUNIBER foundation granted me a grant to start my studies in 2018.

My plan was to complete the master's degree in the two years of the program, so I started my studies steadily and diligently.

The happiest moment of my life!

During this study process I was blessed to marry my dear and loving wife, Marylin Corina, who is from Guatemala!

We had our wedding in August 2019 and we decided to live in El Salvador, so she prepared to complete the papers to obtain the Salvadoran residence.

COVID-19 also impacted our lives

Up to this point, everything was going according to our plans, however ... 2020 began, and as it affected everyone, COVID-19 also impacted our lives. In March 2020 my wife was in Guatemala picking up the last documents when the El Salvador-Guatemala border was closed.

7 difficult months

We were separated for 7 long and arduous months, it was a very sad period where we suffered many tests, we spoke on WhatsApp every night and we cried, we laughed, we fought, but what we felt most was the uncertainty of when we could see each other again .

Finally, in September the border was opened and we were dying to meet again. There was only one last test that we had to pass: paying for the return trip + the swab test in Guatemala, which was quite expensive. We had to use all of our savings to pay everything necessary for her to return, but in the end we managed to meet on September 27!

And that was not all, I managed to finish my master's degree in this period!

My new challenge

Nowadays I have a new difficulty: paying for my graduation and finishing the study process! To start my graduation process and obtain my Master's degree in Industrial Engineering I need to pay $ 600 to the Ibero-American University, unfortunately I did not have enough funds left after my wife's return to the country, in addition to that we must re-invest in completing the documents of residency in difficult times with the pandemic still in effect.

The funds needed to finance my degree

It is for this reason that I wanted to request help to collect the necessary funds to finance my degree and to be able to communicate to FUNIBER that I would cover the price of the diploma through PayPal. I do not have a deadline to make the payment, but I would like to do it as soon as possible to include my studies in my resume and expand my job opportunities.

I hope you are interested in my story, and you would help me a lot to fulfill a personal goal to improve myself and provide a better life for my wife, friends, and future children.

Blessings to all!
