My name is Cintia and I was born at the State of Mexico. I am the eldest among 3 siblings. I am from a poor family. When I was in a very young age, I often witnessed the aggression of my father towards my mother. Often times I saw my father hitting my mother; until one day he decided to abandon the whole family. My mother works in the field daily. I always wanted to help her, so I wanted to have education in order find a good job later on. That is the main reason why I decided to come and study here in “Villa de las NIñas”. Honestly I have difficulty in speaking in Spanish, but I am trying my best to be good every day. I wanted to give example to my younger brothers and Sisters, that one day I can be of help for them.
I am very thankful to the Sisters because they accepted me in this wonderful place, a real home for all. It is a great opportunity for me to continue with my studies and have a brighter future. Now I am learning how to use a sewing machine, and for the first time working with a computer. I am also learning how to draw and different activities like dancing.
I am grateful to my Sister-in-charge. She is very graceful and joyful. She always tries to help us every time we are in need. And also, I am grateful with my dorm mates and classmates. They are really willing to help me understand things that I couldn’t during classes, also they are very willing to help me understand my home works. They always encourage me.
I would like to be better in my studies so that in the future I could be a good teacher, helping in educating the poor, as I am receiving now.
I would like to thank our benefactors for the financial and spiritual support that we are receiving here at Villa de las niñas. I always include in my prayer intentions their good health and their other necessities.
