Educating 160 orphans in Bucaramanga, Colombia

My name is Luis Carlos Caceres and I am happy to tell you, many wonder and are surprised to see me
I am, however I can only say that I am a child who has zest for life and being a big one.
I have 8 years of age, and I must not good lie, things have not been easy, I've had hard times and some overwhelming, but my mom has been there and she always encourages me to continue
forward above all things, ah I forgot to tell you that she is my hero, my mom brought me to school and there she goes home happy for thinking your child is learning and crescendo and becoming a teenager who has many ideals. Eager desire to reach the rest and not just for eat, or rest, but to view it and hug those that elephant she likes so much. In the afternoon the super pass, I like the classes my math teacher Dorothy, she is patient but above all see and understand my ability to learn, I spent the time when something is not as easy for me, she has become my second mother, leads me to classes sports in my chair and play with me and my friends, enjoy life at my school, so that every day I look
looking forward to my mom takes me to start at noon my classes. Sometimes I get tired of sitting all the time, but
I got home and my hero massage me, I lift a little while, of course I know that weight and can sometimes not so long
but she is strong, the strongest in the world.
