My name is Juan Carlos Choc Yaxcal. When I was growing up, my family had to make and sell tamales, pinol, and empanadas to pay my school tuition in order for me to continue with my studies. My family are good people who have helped me a lot. I feel very happy to spend time with them, despite the distance I am from them now. I try and visit them often. We have a very nice home that is surrounded by trees. My house may not be a luxurious home but every day I am grateful and very proud to have my family around and share my good times with them.
I am learning a lot in school and my goal is to obtain new experiences and knowledge that will help me in life. Currently, in my seminar course, my classmates and I are doing a project called Proyecto de Nación (National Project) that is about investigating and knowing the possible problems our country faces daily. This kind of project gives me a lot of encouragement to search for valuable information about my country and know more about it. I really like the career I chose because lots of people I know highly recommended it to me. I will be able to learn and obtain information about computer systems, and I will be able to know how to use networks and web pages, etc.
My future goals are the following: I want to be a professional person and obtain more knowledge through training; that way I can achieve success and improve the quality of my life. I want to be able to help my family with the economic circumstances they are living in. I would like to create projects that will support those in need in my community. I want to be a courageous person who fights every day to achieve my dreams. Every moment I am grateful to the people who help me to continue my studies! Thank you!
