Life gave young Johan Manuel Rodriguez Galvez a second chance, although he never expected to study in prison. He did so thanks to a scholarship awarded by the Bucaramanga Mayor’s Office through the municipal education secretary.

His story is that when you want you can and between “bars and pubs” as the patron states, He was able to complete his studies as a Professional Technician in Commercial Logistics at Fitec University Foundation.

“One always dreams of this aid because it is so useful there. Being alone so many times you think: Oh, please a book. The Bible has helped me a lot, but studying has changed my life,” Rodriguez Galvez told the press team at the Bucaramanga Mayor’s Office.

While in prison, Rodríguez belonged to a community called Nuevos Horizontes, which aims to resettle many of the young people in prisons. Whoever has the “stick” of this program, is the Inpec fortune teller, Heriberto Florez. He is the soul and life of this detoxification, support and treatment and was an angel for this guy who got a scholarship from the municipality administration.

Johan Manuel’s career lasted for two years, he studied in prison a year and a half, the remaining six months of his style he completed abroad while working as a taxi driver in the Bucaramanga metropolitan area.
