A Letter from Darli

Darli 1
Darli 1

Darli's parents were killed in a  car accident when she was small.  Her aunt and uncle took her and her other siblings into their home.  It is difficult for them to provide for Darli and her siblings plus their own three children, but they have given Darli a loving home.  The scholarship you help provide is a great help to the family as they struggle to keep all the children in school.

Darli has set as her goals for 2020 to pass her second year in  high school, get good grades in all her courses, especially her seminar course, and give all her effort to her prepractice teaching. When she graduates, she wants to work as a teacher, continue studying at the university level, and earn a degree.

What is happening right now, she tells you in her letter below.

Dear Friends,                                                                                 

I hope this letter finds you and your family well and your lives full of blessings.

My name is Darli and I am 17 years old. I am in 11th grade at Las Águilas High School studying to be an elementary school teacher. I study there in the afternoon because the career I wanted was not offered in the morning.

On January 15, classes started. I am grateful that they are going well and I am learning many interesting new things. I am paying a lot of attention to my classes in order to get good grades. My classes are easy for me except for math, which is a little difficult. However, I know that I will be able to overcome this challenge.

On February 4, I started my prepractice teaching class and am very anxious because I get nervous when I talk in front of the class. However, I know that I am able to master my nerves and will do well. I will need to make different things to teach a class on animal sounds. 

My family is grateful for our health. The twentieth of January was the festival for Saint Sebastian, our patron saint. Everything was joyful because there was a parade. My aunt and many other families decorated the front of the house. Thanks to God, everything was beautiful at night. My cousins and I went to see costume dances, as is customary to do here. It was wonderful spending time with my family.

I really like doing my homework, helping with the chores, living with my family and helping my cousins with their homework.

Thank you for all of the support you are giving me. It is very helpful to my family and me, especially during my studies. I wish you many blessings and happiness in your beautiful home.

Sincerely,

Darli
