Andres is 11 years old and currently in 3rd Grade. He is the 4th of 5 children and has 2 sisters and 2 brothers. His father is an agricultural worker in the fields but the job has not been permanent and this has made life extremely hard for the family. Seven family members live in one room, and the rest of the family (aunts, uncles and cousins) live on the first floor in the same house.
Andres is a keen reader, especially a book called “El Sembrador”. He wants to be a teacher in the future and be able to teach as many children as possible that it is worth studying and taking advantage of educational opportunities. He has seen many leave Guatemala, but he thinks that it is better to study in Guatemala to become a professional and stay part of the community at home.
