My name is Alejandra Estrada. I’m 15 years old. I live with my mother and 2 brothers and sisters in San Martin Jilotepeque. My father abandoned us long ago. My mother doesn’t work because she’s sick. She has bone cancer and has had several opersations on her leg. My oldest sister works to help us all but she studies too and the money is not sufficient.

I’m in 9th grade. My pastime is to practice sports and my favorite class is mathematics. My goal is to continue studying hard and to become a school teacher in the future. I like to help people in my little town. Afterward, I want to find a good job and to help to my family.
