Ana Gaby & Moni
Living in any social Group or society generally generates camaraderie but also competition among
its members. When this competition is healthy, it brings the best of each individual
These two sisters, Ana Gaby and Moni, the last family members of our family at Puerta Abierta,
did not arrived from a supportive and challenging educational environment, but did arrived with
a lot of discipline. We were greatly surprised when with a lot of courage,effort and perseverance
were able to cope with a new and more demanding educational level. Their performance so far
has been outstanding, showing that attitude and discipline can overcome any difficult
This example has motivated the rest of the girls in Puerta Abierta, to improve their grades,
studying harder. The end result has been a better and more competitive academic level handled as
a game amongst the girls.
It is important to underline the will and pride that these two sisters have, empowering them to
overcome their academic disadvantages at the start of this unintended, but productive contest.
Their example has motivated the rest of the girls, showing how to bring the best within them and
allowing them to achieve higher goals.
This event has taught us how a quiet, determined and consistent example as shown by Gaby
&Moni is a very effective technique to stimulate and/or change our behavior.
