My name is Wilian Noe Lool. I’m 16 years old. I’m in 10th grade. I have no father. So I live with my mother and my 3 brothers and sisters in a place named Sacala near San Martin Jilotepeque.
We live in my grandparents’ house because we don’t own a house. I need help to continue studying because my mother doesn’t make much money and it’s not enough for us all.
I help my grandfather with any things I can. Studying is very important to me because I can get a good job and help my family in the future. My goal is graduate therefore I will study and get good grades.
