Kely Johana Restrepo Rojo, Colombia

Kely Johana studies business administration at EAFIT in the 7th semester. She and her family are victims of the violence in Colombia and they had to flee home when Kely Johana was a child. When at school, she was determined to study at university. In order to fulfill this goal, she attended with other peers extra classes in mathematics, Spanish and other subjects during weekends. She took up studies after she was awarded a scholarship by Fundación Educación. She has acted as academic exercise supervisor. And in 2015, she received the opportunity for an exchange semester at the University of Malaga in Spain because of her outstanding achievements at university. This exchange was not only academically but for her personal development a unique experience and a chance of which she would never have dared to dream.
