I am 12 years old and live with my family of 7 in the community of San Miguel Milpas Altas. Next year I will transition into a new school when I start 7th grade and having a sponsor can play a significant role with my success during this, often times, difficult transition.

I am 5 years old and I felt very happy when I started kindergarten this year. I still am working on making friends. My goal is to study hard and become a doctor when I grow up. I live in San Miguel Milpas Altas with my parents and older brother.
Two of my sisters and I all have the same first name so I like to be called Paty. I am studying in 9th grade and towards the end of the school year in October I will have to make a decision about what I want to focus my studies on in high school.
While my brother and I are in school, my mom works in the fields a few days a week. She hopes to find better work in order to improve our living situation. Right now we live in a single room made out of sheet metal and a dirt floor.
When I grow up I want to be a ballet dancer, but for now I’m just studying in 1st grade. My favorite part of school is when I am able to jump rope. After this year of school, I will have more education than my parents.
My parents and I are new to Common Hope this year. What I like doing most in school is painting, writing and reading. When I grow up I want to be a carpenter. Even though my family of three lives in very poor conditions, my parents know that education can change the future for us.
