Education student makes UAC-CP history


Carmen Pampa Fund extends our congratulations to Yerson Martin Fernández for defending his thesis and receiving his degree in Education from the UAC-CP. In addition to his accolades, Yerson has also made history in Carmen Pampa as the first person with visual impairments to receive his degree from the College. Yerson’s thesis is titled, “Implementation of a pedagogical booklet for learning reading and writing in the Braille System for people with visual disabilities in the Municipality of Coroico.”

Yerson was featured over five years ago in the Summer 2015 WIPALA when he was in his third semester in the Education department. He told us then that his plan was to become a teacher for blind and visually impaired people, and that he was writing a book about his life to motivate others like him. He said then, “I always encourage people with disabilities to keep going. Keep studying. That’s the key to reaching more opportunities.”

As a newly graduated Education professional, Yerson has now accomplished what he set out to do when he arrived at the College: to become a teacher and a role model for young people with disabilities. We wish Yerson the best of luck as he enters his professional career and know that he will create positive change in many peoples’ lives!
