Zulma was born in Cobán, a small village in northern Guatemala, as the fifth child of a low-income family. As a child she always performed above-average at school, this is why she obtained scholarships early on. She managed the entry exam to UVG without problem and was recommended to Fundación Educación for a scholarship by the university. Since, she has completed her bachelor degree with summa cum laude. Now she will continue her studies and dreams of one day being able to offer the same possibilities to young talents as she received by her scholarship of Fundación Educación. Zulma is an excellent example that hard work and dedication are the basis for success and a better future.
