Helen Victoria lives in Tuipic in the San Martin Sacatepequez area. She is 12 years old, in her last year of Elementary School, and the oldest of 5 children aged 3-12. Helen’s father works in the fields, but his job is not a permanent one. Helen’s dream is to study to become a lawyer because she believes that she can help others with their problems. She is an eager student, although language is a challenge for her. Helen does not speak the local language (Mam), but her teacher is helpful because she speaks both Mam and Spanish. In her free time she enjoys reviewing her schoolwork and helping her mother around the house.
