We are a humble and happy family made up of nine siblings, but this year (2021) in July my brother Elfido passed away. My father dedicated himself to planting cornfields and beans, my mother dedicated herself to washing clothes in other people’s houses to help buy food. My brothers and I attended public schools, and two of my older brothers went out to sell things.
I chose to study for a bachelor of legal and social sciences (Lawyer and Notary) because I’d like to know about the laws that govern my country in order to support poor people when their rights are violated; also in order to have a better life for my family by having a better job. I am currently working on my thesis on the agrarian conflict that exists in my town.
Some of my next goals are to graduate from the bachelor’s degree to become a lawyer and notary, then I would like to pursue a master’s degree in a specific branch of law, and have my own legal office. I would like to be part of an organization to support my community that has been affected, along with the rights that are due to them, because of injustices. In the future I also want to support my parents because at their age they are no longer able to work.
