The Hague 07.09.2021 Colombian Ambassador Fernando Grillo, together with Laura Sánchez and Isabela Londoño, public officials, held a meeting with Lina Cárdenas, a Colombian student of Civil Engineering at the Universidad de Los Andes. The latter is currently in the ser Pilo Pago program and is pursuing a Master's degree in the Flood Risk Management program, developed in four countries, including the Netherlands at the University of IHE Delft.

Lina Cárdenas is 23 years old and was born in Sogamoso Boyacá. Lina and her brother were chosen for the beneficiary program ser Pilo Paga. She has stood out for her high academic performance and has participated as a monitor in multiple classes such as hydraulics and geomatics. This experience led Lina to realize what she was passionate about, the area of water resources.

In her last semester of college, she developed her thesis in flood risk, and in December 2018, she sustained it at the International Water Congress in Cartagena.

Lina had always dreamed of studying for a postgraduate degree in the Netherlands and was fortunate to meet prestigious professors from the University of IHE and TU DELFT, who introduced her to the Erasmus Mundus programs and their scholarships.

Lina was chosen among 22 people from different countries for the program she is currently studying. She is the only Colombian who won the scholarship to look for the Master in Flood Risk Management; she is now in Spain and says she wants to return to the Netherlands to develop her thesis.
