Magdalena is 14 years old and lives in a rural area of the Baja Verapaz department. Magdalena's family is of limited economic resources.
Despite the fact that the situation in Guatemala due to COVID-19 is still the same and attending face-to-face classes is restricted. Magdalena, every day, makes important efforts to keep up with school assignments, because she knows that it is the way to carry out her life project.
Magdalena loves to participate in activities in her community, especially in projects aimed at young people; He is currently part of a club that promotes environmental activities (planting trees, installing garbage deposits, cleaning the streets of his community, among others).
“We girls have very few opportunities to develop. I am very happy and grateful for the support provided this inspires us to achieve our goals and dreams. I want to be a successful professional to help my family and improve the situation in which we currently live”.
