We recently received an update from one of our Alumni, Arley. Arley graduated with a Law Degree and she is now working for the government of Quintana Roo. Arley writes, "Again, I thank you for helping me when I needed it most, when I had no hope. I have a quiet life, helped my mom and my brothers and everything has improved for good. I will never forget how much you helped me, they are things that are never forgotten."
We all have times in our lives when we need help and we have times when we get to be the helpers. Arley has made us proud and we wish her continued success!

Our student, Esperanza, has graduated from high school (YAY!) and has decided to pursue a nursing career.
One of the things I always say about our program is how happy it makes me that so many of our student choose professions that will help and benefit SO MANY people! Nursing, teaching, psychology, physical therapy, etc. So, by lifting Esperanza up, we are not only able to improve her circumstances, but we are empowering her to be able to help on a larger scale.
If you are interested in joining Team Esperanza as a sponsor, please let me know. We are needing more sponsors for this student. ☺️
One of the requirements for the students in the Isla Mujeres Scholarship Program is that is that they communicate at least once a month with their sponsors. That communication can be done via email or in the Facebook group that has been created for their team. This is a great way to learn more about each other and to form a lasting relationship.
This month Gibran’s email to his sponsors included a little about a class he is taking as part of the Hospitality Management curriculum. Gibran wrote: “This period was so good we did molecular kitchen it was fried eggs of coconut and mango like “fake fried eggs".
To me this is what makes this program special. Getting to know the students that I sponsor is priceless, so much more than just writIng a check. ♥️
The online auction to benefit the Isla Mujeres Scholarship Program’s was a huge success!
