I already know that I want to be a nurse when I grow up just like my mom. She’s is a single parent raising my two older sisters and me. Unlike many parents, my mom did graduate from high school and expects the same for her three girls.

My father works as a gardener and my mom cleans homes. I am 13 years old and the only child left living at home. I have been waiting for a sponsor since 2012. I know a sponsor would play a critical role in my success.
I am 17 years old and studying in 7th grade. It is hard being the oldest in my class, but I am happy to attend school. This is my first year in the Common Hope program and one of our family goals is to see me stay in school and graduate.
My family lives in the community of San Miguel Milpas Altas. My parents are farmers and earn around $200 per month. I didn’t do well in school last year, so I am repeating the 4th grade. I am looking for a sponsor that is willing to take a chance on me.
I am 16 years old and studying in 7th grade. I am the oldest student in my class. My father is a single parent and works hard to provide for us. One of my sisters graduated from high school last year, another one is on track to graduate this year, and I won’t be far behind.
Partnering with Common Hope means that my mom can receive medical treatment for her headaches. It means that my father can receive social work support since he is unable to work due to losing a leg. And it means that I can go to school and change my family’s future.
