Stories of Success

Amada Morales | Returning Student

“I want to change my own cycle of poverty by becoming a doctor, and I really want to represent the underprivileged in the field of medicine. The IDA program has made pursuing my dream a reality.”

Amada Morales successfully completed WWBIC’s Make Your Money Talk financial awareness series in May, 2012. She subsequently opened an Individual Development Account (IDA) with a goal of using her savings and the matching funds toward education – specifically, eight natural science courses which would qualify her by 2014 for entry into the Latin American School of Medicine in Havana, Cuba.

The IDA has helped her pay for tuition, textbooks and other supplies needed to complete the courses.
