Maria is 19 years old and in her first year of high school at the INED school, specializing in computer studies. She is the youngest of five children. Maria’s mother supports the family by selling traditional clothes in Quetzaltenango, and one of her sons works as an assistant on the local bus service.
Maria’s favorite course at school is artistic expression, and she has decided that she wants to continue her studies at university and become a teacher, although she said that at the present time the economic situation has made securing a job in this profession harder.
Maria’s family are very important to her and although she has their continuing support, a Xela Aid LEAP scholarship would change her life because she would not depend on her brothers to help with school expenses, and she would know that she could look forward to a better future and a good job that would transform her economic situation.
