Helping minority groups be aware of insurances that are available to help those underprivileged or with low income
Project: After having witnessed a financial health emergency with my family, I have been motivated to help others learn about the healthcare system and insurance we have today. My Puksta Project is to make minority groups be aware of insurances that are available to help those underprivileged or with low income be able to pay for their medical bills, medicine, appointments, etc. It’s important that we take care of ourselves and know that asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Your health is a priority.
Inspiration: What inspired me was my mom and my younger cousin who I was babysitting at the time. After he began bleeding from his nose and vomiting I knew we had to call the ambulance, however, my mom didn’t want to because it would be too expensive.
Future Plans for Project: I hope to help low income and underprivileged communities be aware of the opportunities they have to living a healthy life. I want them to not be afraid to ask for help in a moment of crisis or worry about not being financially stable.
