More About Me
Favorite Subject: Language and Mathematics
Dream: To be a chef.
Biography: My name is Dulce. I live in Cerritos. I live with my parents and they work in the field for a living. In my house, I have a cat, a dog, and a bull. I love going to school. Currently, I am in 6th grade of elementary school. I like going to my classes because I can socialize with my peers. I love numbers and letters. When I grow up, I want to be a chef because at home cooking fascinates me and I know if I study, I can achieve it. One of the biggest challenges that I have faced is that due to my disability (deaf-mute) I have had very few opportunities to exploit my abilities, so this scholarship opportunity would allow me to receive care according to my needs and thus be able to achieve everything I set out to do.

What Is Guatemala Like?
Guatemala’s Western Highlands exhibit one of the most extreme combinations of systemic poverty, illiteracy, and inequality in the hemisphere. 3 out of 4 people live in poverty, and 1 in 3 cannot read or write.
Students face overwhelming obstacles to stay in school:
- lack of financial resources
- pressure to marry early
- alcoholism or abuse in their homes
- gang culture
- lack of familial support
- belief that education is not worth investing in
As a result, 95% of poor, rural students never graduate from high school.
You can help a student beat the odds by becoming a sponsor today.
