My mother makes tortillas and my dad works as a farmer. When I grow up I want to be a teacher.  If I could have anything it would be shoes, food and a car. What I want for my family is backpacks, clothes, land, food and good health.

“My favorite things to do in my free time are listen to music and read. There are 5 members in my family. My dad works as a driver and my mom works as a cook. When I am older I want to work as a pediatrician. The quality I value most is respect. If I could have anything for my family it would be better lives for the members of my family.”
