Age: 13“Listening to music is my favorite pastime. There are 6 members in my family. My mom stays at our house and my dad is a gardener. When I grow up I want to be a license giver. I hope in the future I can become a licenser and build a house for my parents. Peace is the most important value to me because I like things to be calm. Something I want for my family is for my parents to have the opportunity to study.  In the future I hope to have a better life for my family. Positive changes I want to see happen in Guatemala are more safety and imprison all the extortionists.”
