Mirna is 19 years old and completed middle school in 2019. When the pandemic began in 2020, her family suffered great economic hardship. Even though Mirna wanted to enroll in high school to specialize in nursing in 2022, she was unable to provide the funds to do so. Her mother had been supporting her, but with two of her younger brothers at school, she was unable to continue with Mirna’s school expenses. There are five children in Mirna’s family, and she is the second sibling. Mirna and her mother support the whole family by working in a banana packing facility two days a week.
Mirna is currently taking a computer technician course at the Xela Aid Computer Lab and with a sponsorship will begin high school in January 2023. In her free time, she likes to help with the housework and listen to contemporary music. She has also been an active member of Xela Aid’s Leaders Program for three years. A scholarship would reignite her dream of studying to become a nurse that had been abandoned due to her circumstances.
