Ours girls’ dreams

I’m lucky to have found some of my passions, others I’m still looking for. But the ones that came knocking at my door and I was able to receive are writing and teaching. I am a teacher in the rural public school system of Guatemala, the greatest fortune a woman who dreamed of teaching and educating, in an education system in which she was always the worst student can have.

After our first months of class in Zinacantán we were talking to some children and parents to find out how the summers are here, and it turns out that, especially the parents, said that the children had too much free time and that sometimes they didn’t know what to do with them. Every parent is familiar with this story, right?

My volunteering in Guatemala

After almost a year of volunteering in Africa, I decided to return to more Latin lands, rich in culture and full of history.
