Meyling Azucena Contreras is the youngest of five children. Although her family is poor, she is blessed with good and conscientious parents. Her mother earns a living making tortillas, and her father is a security guard. Meyling is petite and a little shy, but very intelligent and hard working. She has always been an outstanding student. She entered university at the age of 16 and graduated at age 20. Since her first semester, Meyling was at the top of her class at University Martin Lutero, where she studied Computer Science. When she was not in school or studying, she taught kindergarten at El Padul School. Meyling was our first scholarship recipient to graduate university, and now is working in a diagnostic center, where she analyzes magnetic resonance images. She is very happy in her career and deeply grateful to the Nicaragua College Fund for making it possible for her to study and enter a professional field that will allow her to lift her family out of poverty.
