Laura interviewed for el Diario de Hoy

Article about Laura
Article about Laura's story

Laura is one of the students who participated in the pilot project in Distrito Italia and changed so much through her experience. She is now a model in her school and community. Many of you have seen her in the project's video (

In the last months, she has continued applying Brain Education in her life with great results. Her academic performance has really improved, she organizes her time better to take care of her baby while she goes to school, and she's sharing Brain Education with other students and her family.

Laura has been invited to give her testimony at Korea's Brain Expo next week, an event organized by the Korea Institute of Brain Science (KIBS) to raise awareness of the great value of the human brain. Her experience with Brain Education will help sensitize the Korean community to support the expansion of the program in El Salvador. 

Last week, her story was covered by El Diario de Hoy, one of the main newspapers in the country. I attach the original article and an English translation.

Enjoy your reading and keep helping Laura and many others! Thank you!!!
