My name is Ernesto. My grandparents choose my name and I like it. I am a little tall and I live in Veracruz, a state located at the south of Mexico City.
My mom, Reginalda is 39 years old. Unfortunately, my mom and my dad separated when I was just two years old. Then my mom went to the house of my grandfather Mauricio. For me, he is a father. Because of him and my mom I could grow strong and healthy, despite many difficulties we pass through without having a father.
I studied elementary in a public school where, seeing the effort of my grandpa and the hard work of my mother, I put my heart and mind in studies till I was one of the most outstanding in the region.
One day, one of our cousins watched a video on the internet about the VILLA DE LOS NIÑOS. It was stated that was for people of low income who wanted to succeed in life. My mother thought that it would be a great opportunity for me.
I wanted to accept such a chance, but first of all, I had to take an exam, when I took it I was very nervous, but I made it, and I worked very hard in the fields to be able to pay for the transportation. I dedicated all my strength and sacrificed my playing time to be able earn a little money. But sadly, the following month I have a very strong loss: My “father” (grandfather) died of kidney’s cancer on March 24, 2021.
I considered myself a strong boy who can bear difficulties, but I cried a lot, and I did not want to leave my mom alone, I lost the appetite to study. But we had to make that sacrifice of being separated for a time because that was for my own good and the good of my family.
I had the privilege to enter VILLA DE LOS NIÑOS and now I am in my second year of high school. I try my best to always being very cheerful. I am responsible, good friend, hardworking, honest.
I want to become a military man and to put our country very high, I want to marry a nurse and I want to have triplets or twins, maybe twins as sons it is okay. I come from a big and united family, which is the one that is supporting me today and continues to support me to achieve my dreams.
I hope that God willing someone else will support me until I can grow enough. Thank you for what you do for us.
