Hi, my name is Ovidio Curruchich Lux. I’m 15 years old and am in 8th grade. I live with my mother and 2 brothers and sisters in San Martin Jilotepeque. My mother sells newspapers on the street. I have no father. I like to play soccer and my favorite class is math.
I want to become a great mechanic to get a good job in the future. I help my mother to sell newspapers every morning to make a little money but it isn’t enough for us all. So I need a little help to continue with my school.
