[color=#222222]Dear Sponsors, [/color]
[font=arial, sans-serif]
I am 18 years old and I am from Rosado, a village outside the town[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]Tobatí. When I am in Rosado, I live with my four siblings and my[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]parents. I am the oldest of all the children. Last year I graduate [/font][font=arial, sans-serif]from Instituto Cultural Reinaldo Macchi and I am now attending the[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]Joseph Coiffure Hair Styling Academy in Asunción. When I am not [/font][font=arial, sans-serif]studying or attending classes I am working and living in Asunción as a [/font][font=arial, sans-serif]nanny. On the weekends I return to Rosado to spend time with my family[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]and I often work with my father in the artisan shop to help him[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]support our family. This past February I began studying at the[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]Academy. It is my goal that within two years I will have my [/font][font=arial, sans-serif]professional certificate and be able to begin working and earning a[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]salary. While I love what I am doing, in the future I hope to use the [/font][font=arial, sans-serif]money I will make to return to school and study to be an Orthodontist.[/font]

[font=arial, sans-serif]My time at the Institute taught me that nothing important comes easily[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]and you must fight for what you want. Every day I remind myself of[/font] [font=arial, sans-serif]that and it gives me the strength to continue.[/font]
