My name is Dora Diaz. I’m 19 years old. I live in San Martin Jilotepeque, Guatemala, with my parents and 5 brothers and sisters. I love to cook.
My father is a farmer and my mother stays home to take care of our family. I want to graducate from high school and go on to college to become a chef. My parents are very poor and so I am grateful for your help. I couldn’t go to school without it.
