#ChampsDaily: Alejandro Has a Great Future

AlejandroENG
AlejandroENG

Alejandro is 12 years old and lives with his mom and grandparents in Arequipa, Peru. He has practiced judo and saxophone since he was 6 and 8 years old respectively. Practicing a sport and playing music has been a major factor in the discipline, responsibility, and commitment he has nowadays.

Thanks to that, he has participated and won various contests: he represented his school in “Tinkuy” and recited in front of thousands of people, he also won the judo tournament and increased his belt level. Nonetheless, although he has won various medals and awards, Alejandro values more the experiences and knowledge gained from each event.

The leadership program Peru Champs offer has increased Alejandro´s self-confidence, his presentations in class, and his capabilities to become an agent of change. Likewise, throughout the projects he participated in, Alejandro has felt committed to having a positive impact in his community. At school, he relates and socializes more with his teachers and classmates. He also enjoys mathematics, and dreams about becoming an engineer without leaving behind his passion for judo and the saxophone.

Unfortunately, COVID19 has prevented him to continue with his activities. Yet, Alejandro sees this situation as a challenge that won’t stop him from accomplishing his goals. He has found various ways to keep up with his activities through instructive videos to complete his training sessions or through group video calls where he rehearses the musical scores with his band. His band´s goal is to write a song, where each member films their part from home. Alejandro strongly believes that the knowledge acquired throughout his life should be used in a positive way to adapt to change.

Alejandro´s optimism makes him an outstanding kid; he takes the current context with calm and tries to be as productive as possible by reinventing himself and dedicating time to his family, who admire his strength and perseverance. In his free time, he enjoys drawing and painting landscapes, animals, people, amongst other things. Throughout the arts and sports  Alejandro has learned valuable lessons and thanks to his commitment and discipline he accomplishes his goals, regardless of the adversities.
