Many people decide to start a life in the United States, parents who seek a better future for their children, young people with a dream.
But it is not easy to achieve, studies in the United States are not economic and it is a challenge to achieve this goal.
But many have achieved the goal with the help of scholarships.
It is for this reason that young Hispanics have joined the campaign #ForTheDream to encourage Latino students to find the necessary support to achieve the dream of a college education, all this through social networks.
Organizations like HSP (Hispanic Scholarship Fund), one of the most important for higher education, has worked hard for Hispanics to achieve their professional dream.
Their effort has been supported by companies like Coca Cola who in this 2015 gave a grant of $ 100,000 for the program to continue helping young people, involving all social networks.
The program encourages students to post to Twitter or Instagram a ‘selfie “next to the person who is helping them achieve their college dreams, and use the #ForTheDreamSweeps label. For each photo Coca Cola will donate $ 1, college visits and $ 500 in scholarships.
Andrea Zayas, is one of the success stories, a young aspirant from Puerto Rico who came to the United States thanks to the desire of her parents, they want their two children could have a better education.
Zayas participated in the “For The Dream” program and received a scholarship from the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF) and Coca Cola last year to
study at a university. Zayas is currently studying Finance at the University of Georgia.
Another success story is the Cuban Carolina Rojas who became the first in her family to go to college. She has achieved the scholarship and this made her gain confidence to work for their future and also made her understand that giving and receiving is the best philosophy of life.
Since she received help once, she wants to help others achieve their goals.
