Profile

My name is Liset Aurora. I was born in Tunja, Colombia, South America. I am 11 years old. I am the youngest of three children. My older sister is 21 and my younger sister is 20. She has a 2 year old baby. I live with my mother, my two sisters, my nephew and three uncles in a rented apartment. My father abandoned us when I was 4 years old. He lives with another woman and has a little girl-my third sister. Since then, my mother has not received any financial support from him. We, his daughters, do not receive any support towards our education. My mother has struggled and worked very hard to send us to school. My sisters already finished high school but because of financial difficulties were not able to attend college. My sisters do have to work to help my mother because she had an aneurysm and was not able to get a job again, even though she had the desired to continue working. My mother then started to make wooden handicrafts. She sells those handicrafts and with the money she gets we barely pay the expenses of the house. We are a very humble family.

I am on 5th grade at the Colegio Boyaca in Tunja city. I want to finish high school and go to the university to become a veterinarian. I also want to travel and do a specialization in animals. I have a female dog, a hen and a rabbit as my pets. In my spare time I enjoy singing, dancing and playing basketball.

  • Letter from Liset

    Dear sponsors: I want to thank you for the support you have given me throughout these years of my life. You have been helping me since I was little. For me to think about having you as sponsors who are concerned about me and my well being makes me really joyful and happy. I am doing well at school. I am in 8th grade and I feel very happy because I have great friends. Throughout this time I have grown a lot and I have been able to understand several things. The first thing is that as a girl I can have boys as friends not only girls. Actually, it might sound weird but I have 15 friends who are boys and only 4 girl friends. Here in Colombia people say that a girl’s best friend is a boy not a girl and I agree that it's true. The ages of the boys who are my friends are diverse. They are 17, 15 and 14 which is my age now. Being a teenager is a very nice stage in life and thanks to God I have been able to live it in a responsible way. Thanks for everything. Liset Aurora
