Hello! How are you? I hope you are in good health. I want to tell you that I live with all my family. My first sister is 17 years old and her name is Cindy. My other two sisters are Jennifer and Yoselin. My father´s name is Marcos and my mother´s name is Elda. My father works as a farmer and my mother works as a domestic employee. My father is working in a piece of land of my grandmother, and my mother is working in my grandmother´s house. I have had stomach pain but thank God, I have taken medicine and I am well, I am going to visit the LW clinic soon. Thank God, my family is in good health. I also have been in the hospital, but I did not buy two of the medicines for lack of resources. I am in 7th grade at school, and my sister Cindy is the second year of her professional career to become an accountant. One of my sisters is in the 9th grade and the other is in kindergarten.
Thank God, my father and mother are working hard so they can support us. My sister Cindy is looking for a place to do her pre-practice in some company. My favorite subject is mathematics. I work with my grandmother after school, I work by tending her grocery store or by cleaning her house. I study from 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, and I work from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. At Christmas time, my family and I have a reunion and we eat ¨chuchitos tamales and ponche¨ (typical snack or typical dish and hot fruit drink). We also prepare grilled meat and we pray to God for another year. I would like to study a master´s degree or a doctorate. I like to go out to talk with my friends. I like to play football, basketball, sing and dance. I attend a Catholic Church and it is located near the central park. Last January 26, I got sick and I went to the hospital. I took medicine, but now, I am in good health. I ask for your prayers for me. I say goodbye to you for now with much love.
