My Story

Zacualpa is a small but busy village in a mountain valley. The village is inhabited by both Quiche Mayans and Ladinos (those with mixed European ancestry). The prevalent language is Spanish. Families in this village live in one or two room homes generally constructed of either wood or adobe. Although many of the people are farmers, the village contains several small, specialized stores, a body repair shop for buses, mechanics, plumbers and many other small-town tradesmen. It also has a large open-air market which serves much of the area. Even with all of this, the poverty level is very high and the children are very needy.

I am Kyrie Nicole Manuela Tol Perez. I was born on October 25, 2015. I am a 7-year-old girl. I am in kindergarten this year. I like to play with dolls and toy dishes. I love the color purple. The giraffe is my favorite animal. I like eating spaghetti. I thank God for keeping my family and me healthy. I live happily with my mother and one brother. My father´s name is Juan Tol Ticum. He left to go to the United States and is working in construction. He is separated from my mother; however, he is sending us financial support. My mother´s name is Laura Karina Perez Granados, and she does the chores at home. Moreover, she works in a dish store. We have a cat as a pet.

The house in which we live belongs to my grandparents, and we share it with my great-grandmother and uncles. There are 3 rooms, and the kitchen is separate. The house is made of blocks, cement rood and a cement floor. We have water and electricity services, and my grandfather is in charge of paying them. I walk 5 minutes to get to the feeding program. We do not attend church for now. I appreciate you taking time to read about my personal information.

Kisses and hugs with much love,

Kyrie Nicole Manuela Tol Perez
