Brenda is 16 years old and in her last year of High School in San Martin Chiquito. She is receiving in person classes twice a week and virtual classes in Xela Aid’s computer lab which is a state-of-the-art Covid safe facility for our local students. She is the third of five children with three brothers and a sister. Her mother works in a clothing store and along with two of Brenda’s brothers, pays for the family’s expenses. Brenda’s favorite class is Mam, which is the indigenous language of the region. She likes Agustin Amador’s music, and watching sports, especially in winter when she enjoys the feel of the rain! Her intention is to pursue a medical career because she wants to be able to help the many people that need it.
