My name is Jairo Isaac Levi Atz. I´m 17 years old and I´m in 11th grade. I live in a place named Xesuj near San Martin Jilotepeque with my parents and two brothers and sisters. My father is a farmer and my mother is a housewife. I like to read and my favorite class is math. We are poor and the money that my father makes isn´t enough to pay for me. Studying is very important for me so I can get all my goals and help with personal and work development. So I need help with my school. I want to become a engineer therefore I´ll work very hard to get a good grades.
