Luis Gerardo is in his third year of high school at the Thilo Deininger National Institute. He expects to graduate at the end of 2020. He lives with his mom, dad, and two brothers, both studying in elementary school. Luis Gerardo starts his classes at 8:30am every day, and spends most of his time at school since he finishes classes at 5:50pm. Within the scholarship program, Luis has learned to give back to his community, be an outstanding student and, become an agent of change in society. He is grateful for both the financial support and formation in different themes he is receiving through monthly workshops. He looks forward to continue studying in a university after the completion of his high school education. He’s determined to become a great leader and make decisions that have a strong impact at a local and national level.
