Dear the World!
During this COVID-19, I have been feeling stressed and frustrated with online studies. I know that going to school is not the same as studying online because the topics I have learned are harder to understand in comparison to a teacher explaining and telling me if what I’m doing is correct or not. This has been a huge challenge for me, but I’m sure that when I attend university, it will be easier to handle, and also I’ll have a better comprehension of the topics I’ll study.
I’m also worried because I’m not able to do the same things I used to do, such as enjoy the companionship of my friends, walk to school with my friends, and talk about the things we see on the way to school. My family lives in the state of Guerrero; my grandparents are older and I don’t want them to be infected by this virus and not be able to see them again. I feel sad because I can’t talk to them. In the area where they live, there is no phone signal. Furthermore, due to the pandemic my little siblings haven’t been accepted to enter NPH yet. I hope this ends soon so they can come to the home and we can be together again.
I want to tell my family to keep calm because at home: we have had the necessary measures to avoid contagion at NPH Mexico. I also want to tell them to take this seriously because in my home town people have their own beliefs and don’t pay attention to what actually happens. Every day I’m praying for their safety and health.
During these uncertain times, I have learned that we should give more value to the people that surround us: our friends, our family, and my godparents that care for me. I have learned to enjoy my new NPH family and the incredible moments we have together. I’ve also learned the values that our Father William Wasson left us.
Thanks to what we are currently living through, I’m now assigned for being responsible for our library, which is a great opportunity because one of the things I love most is to read in my spare time. I love this new assignment. I know it is a huge responsibility because I have to control the books I lend out. I have proposed that children read books in the library, but there are too many and thus, I don’t know where to begin. I’m really thankful for this opportunity they have given me and I’m going to make the best of it.
After concluding my first year of high school, I am preparing for different activities such as origami, how to prepare fruit-flavored soft drinks, and how to make typical Mexican sweets, as well as how to save money and learn to create a successful business. My favorite activities are emotional sciences, typical Mexican sweets, and origami. I like them so much that I’m going to teach my siblings when they join me here. We have had sports activities like soccer, basketball, and volleyball; though my team hasn’t won, the most important part is to have fun and enjoy my friends’ company.
Regarding my godparents, donors, and caregivers, I just want to tell you that I’m really happy to have you near me, supporting me in the easiest and hardest moments. I want you to know you are always in my heart and I’ll never forget you. I hope you are well, and I pray for you so this pandemic doesn’t get to your homes and families. I thank you with my heart for all your efforts to keep this family moving on.
