Luisa will begin her third year of medical school in January 2020. She is the daughter of a pastor from the small community of Cotzal, located in the mountains of Guatemala. She is a child of a war that impacted her community for over 30 years, but one that also impacted her family personally as her grandfather was executed during the height of the conflict. Luisa is proud of her Maya heritage. Her passion for studying medicine has never wavered, and she is committed to returning to her community to provide medical care to those without access to a qualified doctor. I have personally known Luisa and her parents for 10 years...she is the real deal! Luisa will be a difference-maker for her community after completion of her studies. WIND is raising funds to provide Luisa with a $5000 scholarship to help with her studies.
