Luis

My name is Luis. I am 10 years old and studying in 3rd grade this year. My mom works hard trying to support my three siblings and I. She works as a farmer and snaps the ends of peas. It’s hard work, seasonal work, and that is why she asked for help from Common Hope to help with the costs of school. Her dream is to see her children go to school and one day graduate.

Cristina

My name is Cristina Elisa and I am in 1st grade this year. My favorite game to play is hide-and-seek. I am really good at hiding! I think I would like to be a doctor when I grow up so I can make people feel better.
