Alumni Paloma is doing great and is working at Garrafon as an accountant and really enjoying it. In January she will be going back to university for her masters in Accounting specializing in Tax Accounting.
Sponsors are need for Team Alexandra.
Alexandra is a new student to us, but has already started at the University of Humanities in Cancun, studying Psychology. Alexandra, who is a seventh-term psychology student and who studies in a hybrid system studying one day a week. Under normal conditions, her family could continue supporting her study, but since her mother suffers kidney failure (she is a patient at the Isla Diabetics Clinic) she is receiving hemodialysis twice a week and had to leave her job since she does not have the energy to continue working. I see in the mother's words a cry for help to avoid that her daughter stops studying because she cannot pay for her studies.
Alexandra is single parenting her 5 year old son. She is very artist and has entered drawings in competitions.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for Alexandra, contact Team Captain Jackie Conlon.

Eli, one of our scholarship students is spending a month in Canada attending a university English course. This is something he has wanted to do for quite some time. His sponsors Robyn and Carl are hosting Eli in their home in Ottawa. Eli is making life long memories and experiencing so many new things. Our students become part of our families as evidenced in Eli’s journey. I can’t wait to see all of Eli’s photos and hear more about his adventures in Canada.

Marlene’s self introduction:
“I am a single mother of two children and my chances of paying for a university degree in law are currently impossible. I do not want to abandon my dreams. My only livelihood at the moment is the profits generated by my sales of various items on Facebook. I have had difficult times and I know that my opportunities would increase if I had a better academic education. It is a dream to have a law degree in my hands but it is also a necessity to have good employment and to be able to provide a better quality of life for my two children. Now, they are the engine of my life and they drive me every day to look for new and better opportunities.
I have taken a first aid course and a workshop in sign language and braille. I really like to learn as much as possible. From experience I know that the more you know, the more opportunities you will have in life.
My goal is to get a university degree in law. I want to be someone who vulnerable people can come to without worrying about the cost of legal services. Often people do not receive the legal advice they deserve.
I want to have a full life. I am willing to put in the best effort and get the best grades. I know I can achieve it! My life has not been easy alone with two children and it is time for my life to take better directions.
Thank you all for taking the time to learn a little about my story.”
Joelle, Marlene and Mark. Mark is Team Marlene’s Captain.
