Ninoska, born on July 22nd, 1992, is an original VISEDAL scholar. She is the oldest of her family, with 4 younger siblings who have all joined VISEDAL. Carlos, Kevin Antonio, Kimberly, and Didier all look up to her. In January of 2011, Ninoska became a mother and named her daughter Nefret, after an amazing VISEDAL volunteer and dear friend of hers. As a child, Ninoska lost a number of years of schooling in order to help her family. Now as a mother, she still is striving to finish high school and hopes to go to college. She is a hard worker and is very sincere and honest. With the help of VISEDAL, and God's direction in her life, she hopes to be the first in her family to have a college education and escape the cycle of poverty.
