Melanie in Acaxochitlan, Hidalgo, Mexico
With year three of the project well underway, we wanted to bring you a special treat: a video of Melanie, one of the primary school students in Acaxochitlan, Hidalgo, Mexico.
For those of you who don't speak Spanish, here is what she says, then just sit back and watch and let her sincerity wash over you:
My name is Melanie, If you are a bit reserved and challenging like I was, after the Yo quiero Yo puedo workshops you may be more friendly, you may be able to talk to more people.... it helped me to know myself, know what I am capable of. Thank you!
We continue working and expanding the program with other girls like Melanie each donation we receive.
The Yo quiero Yo puedo team
Ps- We are grateful to Melanie for sharing her story and letting us share her name.
