Heidy currently studies at our Girlstown Guatemala. She grew up primarily living with her Aunt in a house made of sugar cane reeds because her mother had to work, and her father abandoned them when she was only an infant. Life was very difficult. They didn’t have enough money for food, and would sometimes only eat a few tortillas a day. When she was finally able to go to school after much sacrifice, Heidy loved to learn, but unfortunately couldn’t afford everything she needed for school and was often outcast by her classmates for being poor.Her life with the Sisters has been an immense blessing to her and her family. She is able to learn and receive the care a child needs without worry of financial burden.
Heidy hopes to continue her studies to become an attorney!
