Ashley Gonzales

My mother and I learned about Engadi Ministries through our neighbor, whose son attends the Derek Program.  When I learned about what Engadi Ministries does through the scholarship program, I became interested in getting a scholarship.  I pride myself on always doing my best to get good grades, and I stay very focused on my studies.

My mother works selling a Salvadoran street food called “pupusas.” She does this work to support herself and me and all my siblings.  My father does not live with us.  He left when I was 5 years old and that is why we have always been short on money,  I started working when I was 14 years old.  Soon I moved on to a permanent job, but I have been disappointed because they underpaid me because of my young age.

I have always liked numbers and that motivated me to choose my current career  pathway in accounting.  Someday I would like to enroll in the university to study Auditing or Administration.  One of my great motivations for becoming a professional is that I do not want to be limited to only being able to take certain jobs because I do not have a degree.  Of course one of my goals is to help my family to have a better finances, since over the years I have seen how my mother struggles to provide the basics.  That helped me realize that study is indispensable, in order to have a better life.  I have always wanted to study, but financial limitations have prevented me, so I am grateful that now I have been given the opportunity to continue studying.
