In Chronological Order
Based on When Sponsorship Began
Born in 1995, Judeymi inspired the creation of Posibilidad. She became pregnant during her final year of Secondary School, requiring Cesarian Section due to pregnancy complications. Judeymi has done a good job as mother for her son Christopher. However, Christopher suffered full thickness burns to his left foot in a trash fire in 2015. Fortunately – there is an excellent burn care center in Managua – APROQUEN. APROQUEN was created by Vivian Pellas – who suffered burns in an airplane crash in 1989. They provided very professional care for Christopher’s infected burns. His foot is healed but he still requires Physical Therapy @ APROQUEN. Judeymi returned to complete her Secondary School. She’s in her 2nd year of Nursing School at UNAN – Somotillo.
Born in 1994, this dynamic, creative young woman has been a sponsorship recipient since entering Secondary School. Along with Judeymi, Daniela inspired the creation of Posibilidad. She’s finished a three year course of teacher’s training and is studying Spanish Language and Literature at the national university (UNAN). Daniela is a talented actress – having participated in several theater productions in Secondary School – and with a professional theater company in Managua. She is also performing with Teatro Catalina. Her daughter, Freydel, just celebrated her first Birthday.
Born in 1994, this vivacious and talented young woman first completed one year of Pharmacy training. Then she studied Veterinary Medicine at the national university (UNAN) for two years. But she has decided that she wants to become a nurse, and is now in her 2nd year of Nurses Training. Joseling is a very talented actress and continues to act with Teatro Catalina. She has matured nicely and was recently married, to her boyfriend of several years.
Born in 1993, Luisa is a very mature and self possessed young woman. She is finishing her fifth year of Pharmacy training at a private university, and will complete her studies with her Professional Practicum next Spring. Luisa was a bit shy, but she’s become a confident, strong presence within our sponsorship group. Her brother Hector is studying Physical Education @ UNAN. Posibilidad provides for his transportation to University.
Born in 1992, this enthusiastic and outgoing young woman completed two years of Pharmacy training at private university. She then qualified to study at the national university (UNAN) and has finished her fourth year, majoring in Analytic Chemistry. The youngest of seven children, Ana Bessi advocated for the daughter of a family friend who needed sponsorship (See Profile for Martita). Posibilidad group members chipped in every month to sponsor this lovely Secondary School student. In January 2017 Ana Bessi suffered a severe knee fracture. After a long search, we were able to find a good surgeon for the necessary repair (ORIF). We have finally been able to arrange for the Physical Therapy that she requires. PT will begin in August and Ana Bessi hopes to return to University in March.
Born in 1991, this sincere young woman completed Law School and her Legal Practicum (equivalent to the Bar exam) in July 2015. In July 2017, she finally received her Legal and Notary licenses. As it’s quite difficult to break into the legal profession in Nicaragua, we arranged for her to gain practical experience, and make professional connections, by doing volunteer work for a progressive local lawyer. Fatima has also been training with another young female lawyer. She has married and is expecting her first child in August 2017. Her younger sister is Jorlenys.
Born in 1993, this quiet young woman has finished her Pharmacy training at private university.

Her older sister is Fatima.

Her younger sister is Oscarina.
Born in 1993, this young woman is very mature and capable. She’s been working at major Nicaraguan banks for several years, and has now entered bank management.

She aspires to transfer to a program in Biology. Both she and her sister Milagros are very engaging and they each have excellent interpersonal skills. Rossmery has taken supplemental English classes and can succeed in any field that she might choose.

Her father Orlando died of MesoAmerican Nephropathy in 2017.
Born in 2000, Martita is one of five children. Her Mother is good friends with Ana Bessi’s Mom. Several years ago, Ana Bessi spoke eloquently about Martita’s need for school sponsorship.

She will complete Secondary School in Fall 2017, and aspires to study at UNAN in a scientific field.
