The scholarship student and participant of the Bright Stars program, Glerysbeth Torres Heredia, is an example of the discipline required to achieve the proposed goals. For this reason, during her high school graduation she obtained the recognition of Academic Excellence from the Department of Education (DE).
The key to success for Torres Heredia has always been to stay focused on her goals and to keep moving forward even in the face of adversity. Thanks to this, she was able to finish her academic years with excellent grades. On the other hand, her participation in public speaking activities helped her lose her fears and become a spokesperson for different topics of interest in society.
The graduate of the Josefina León Zayas High School in Jayuya, she aspires to obtain a degree in Biomedical Sciences at the Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico.
“My goal is to become a doctor in psychiatry. I would like to contribute to society in a better way and help anyone who needs a hand, so that they may live comfortably with stable mental health to face the coming problems find solutions to these different situations. I want to be part of the change for the better in our country”, said the student.
At the foundation, we are proud to be part of the growth and development of students, especially in the new reality that we are living. We wish Glerysbeth every success in this new adventure to come.
Don’t stop dreaming, Glerysbeth!
