An Honor Student and An Artist

                                                  An Honor Student and An Artist

 

     Magdelena, one of the students in the Community Action Alliance’s Scholarship program, is a 6th grader who has been on the honor roll at her elementary school since 1st grade.  It has not been an easy accomplishment, but she has persevered despite her mother’s stomach cancer and father’s struggle to find work, and she has been successful with the help of her extended family and her own work ethic and belief in always “ doing your best”.  Not only has she excelled academically, but she was recently awarded 3rd place in the entire country of Costa Rica for her painting of “What Costa Rica Means to Me”.  Students in the entire country competed in this contest and the 1st and 2nd places went to much older, experienced students, so this was quite special.  She is becoming bilingual in English and  Spanish  with the help of some of our Education Committee’s English tutors and since I am one of these tutors, I can truly say that she is a joy to teach! 

It is through the generosity of donors to GlobalGiving  that we are able to provide necessary school supplies such as uniforms and books (and even painting supplies occasionally)  for students like  Magdelena,  and we are very  proud to celebrate her accomplishments!
