Hello, my name is Annelis; I’m nine years old, I’m a girl who wants to study hard to become a nurse and help to heal many people that can’t afford to pay a doctor. I have five wonderful sisters who I play with and we’re always taking care of each other.
Daddy works helping to organize events and parties, he is in charge of setting the chairs and tables and he makes that the people in the party are having a beautiful place where they can eat and have fun. He’s a great man and he helps my sisters and I in everything we are doing.
My mommy is the most beautiful woman in the world, but lately she has been sad, and I don’t know why; but every night she complains of having much pain in her throat, my daddy says that she will feel better soon, but I don’t think so, because she is very thin and is losing her hair.
I try to coddle my mommy every day, but she is not getting better, however, I want her to feel better; for that reason, I’m studying hard everyday at the Dreamer Center School in Asociación Nuestros Ahijados, to reach my dream of being a nurse. Now, I’m in third grade and I love to go to school.
I like to play with my sisters and also to help with the house duties, when I come back from school, I help to feed my mommy, she eats a very little food, almost nothing, but we prepare the most delicious food for her, so she can eat.
I feel happy to study at the Dreamer Center School, they feed me breakfast and lunch every day but what I like the most is my classroom, it’s always very neat and clean and there are a lot of green plants; it looks like a palace to me. I love it here because we can play hide and seek and it’s hard to find the children. I wake up everyday happy and anxious to get to school. I can be the happiest girl there!
I love to play with all the volunteers, they are always happy and they help me to study, besides that they support Asociación Nuestros Ahijados so I can keep receiving education. Thanks to them I can continue building my dreams.
