I grew up in a large family, the 7th daughter of 10 siblings. My father was the only one who worked. Many of my brothers had to work from a very young age to help with the sustenance of the home. I had the opportunity to have help from one of my sisters who dedicated herself to work. At times we suffered a lot because we had little resources.
Now I am studying in the seventh semester in the major of legal and social sciences, lawyer and notary, at the University of San Carlos de Guatemala. I chose this career because I know there is a lot of need in our community. I want to be a support to those people who can not afford a lawyer. At times I work tutoring children of different ages in English or another course. At one point in my life I had to stop studying for about two years, as I got married and had my son and started helping my family financially.
My plan for the future, is that God first makes me be able to graduate and be able to specialize in Criminal Law. My great dream is to begin a law firm to be able to serve people who in reality, as I said, can not afford a lawyer when they need it most.
