Meet Sandra, a MayaWorks Scholarship Recipient

Sandra, MayaWorks
Sandra, MayaWorks' scholarship recipient

MayaWorks believes the development of communities begins with the development of its girls which is why, in each of the communities where MayaWorks operates in Guatemala, we coordinate tutoring and academic services for the daughters of our artisan partners.

Sandra, a second grade student from MayaWorks Rosa Moya Center in Comalapa, is only a little bitty thing but is so full of life, her presence fills the room.   Meet her in her own words:

"My name is Sandra and I am eight years old.  I'm in second grade.  My favorite subject is Spanish language because I love reading. When I grow up I want to be a botonist.  I love to take care of plants.

"I'm an only child.  I had a younger sister, but she died when she was little.  My parents take good care of me because they do not want me to get sick like my little sister.  

"When I'm not in school I like to help my mom clean the house and cook dinner but I have lots of homework so sometimes I can't help her.  I do my homework right away when I come home from school.

"Every week I go to the Rosa Moya Center to get help with my homework, especially math.  I have trouble adding three digits.  I love going to the Center because I see my friends and my teacher and learn lots of things while having fun.  My parents are happy I have a MayaWorks scholarship.  With the money they buy my school supplies and uniform.

"I like when people from the U.S. visit us at the Rosa Moya Center.  I like making new friends from far away places and teaching them the folklore dances of Guatemala. I'm very happy at the Rosa Moya Center.  Please come and visit me and my friends."
