SHARE THE LOVE!

The Talented Micaela Mican

Micaela Macan is a spirited poet from a town about 5 hours away from the school. She writes poetry to process the world as she sees it and as an outlet for her feelings.  She is from a single parent household, and her mother works long hours cleaning at a local company. She has an 11 year old brother, and suffered the tragic loss of a younger brother due to a venomous snake bite. Micaela is entering her junior year in the school. She remarks that the local school options from her town are limited, and she is grateful to pursue a high quality education. She hopes to go to university one day to study agronomy.

SHARE THE LOVE!  You can help Micaela and others like her pursue their dreams of going to university. Please consider making a donation to the college fund for the girls from the Mbaracayú Educational Center as a gift this Valentine’s Day through Global Giving. Enjoy a sample of Micaela’s poetry below. Happy Valentine’s Day!
