Success Stories

Kinesis has been a support, not only financially but also in my professional and personal growth. The team has always been by my side. I am proud to be part of an organization that pushes its students to achieve their goals. This is my last year of college, but I know that our relationship will remain strong. I hope to be a resource to Kinesis students in the same way others were to me.

The Kinesis Foundation provided me with financial support through every stage of my education. That support was a big alleviating factor in my university studies, which made it possible for me to pursue a medical career without taking on substantial loans and incurring in crippling debt.

Kinesis encouraged me to dream big and gave me the tools to develop within this industry. With their guidance, I identified the schools that fit my interests. Thanks to its scholarship, I completed a Bachelor in Drama and Creative Writing at Carnegie Mellon University, where I will now pursue a Master’s in Drama Writing. I am very grateful for the guidance and support that the foundation has given me.
