Beatriz is 11 years old, an only child and a fifth grader at the San Martin Chiquito School, attending school three mornings a week, with homework assignments for the afternoons. Her favorite subject is math because she has a gift for numbers. Her mother weaves typical Guatemalan blouses and her father works in the fields to grow produce that he can sell. In her free time, Beatriz likes to help her mother with the housework, and she has learned to weave items that she can sell to help with the family’s expenses. What she likes most is to be able to study and she is a member Xela Aid’s Study Center Program. Her uncle is teaching her to play the guitar.
Beatriz has seen pictures of airline stewardesses, just like the movies. She has always wanted to get on a plane, and it makes her very excited to think that one day she might be able to do that.
