 Age: 11Hobbies: Playing with my siblings“I have three siblings and my mother is a homemaker. When I grow up I want to be a veterinarian. The value that is important to me is respect. What I want for my family is that we would always be happy.”

Age: 11“In my free time I like to dance. There are 5 people in my family. My dad works in Guatemala City in construction and my mom cleans people’s houses. When I am older I want to be a teacher. The most important value in a person to me is love and respect. Things I want for my family are health, love and peace.”

Age: 15“Listening to music is one of my favorite things to do. There are 15 people in my family. My mom works in a kitchen and my dad died three years ago. When I grow up I want to be a doctor or an actress. My goals are the finish school and study very hard. Respect is the most important value to me. Something I hope my family can accomplish is move out of the house we are currently at and into a better house. In the future I hope I can accomplish my goal of being a doctor or actress. Things I want to see change in Guatemala are the violence, more job opportunities and less stealing.”

 Age: 10Hobbies: play with toysThere are fifteen people in my family. My dad is a construction worker and my mother cleans. When I grow up I want to be a doctor. If I could have anything it would be to know that my family is always ok. What I want for my family is God’s blessing.
