About

Alex has become a positive role model for his peers, as he is mature and has shared his mathematical talents by providing voluntary tutoring sessions for his peers. He is committed to his community and returns every weekend to learn traditional knowledge from his father, who is the president of the community's weaving cooperative. Alex is also an artist, making bone carvings, clay sculptures, and paintings in his spare time. Alex has found a unique way to combine his artistic talent and passion for technical engineering. This year he helped his parents to remodel their adobe house by designing and creating intricate clay sculptures for the walls of his house. During his school year, Alex participated in Mosqoy's "Kallpa K'oj" program in which students are encouraged to give back to their communities through volunteer services. During his community volunteer work, Alex renovate the elementary-school library in a rural village called Q'enqo. He painted a mural for the library to make it inspiring and culturally appropriate for the young students. Combining these diverse talents, Alex hopes to pursue a career in Architectural Engineering & Design, upon graduating with his degree.

Hello Alex. I had the privilege of supporting Rolando Accaupuri in the past and wish you similar success in meeting your future goals. Jody Bain
Thank you all for your support, I am so thankful for it. I hope you go well with your plans!

Hola Dorothy! For my studies, one of my plans is to better the situation in my community, and I am only able to do that if I study Civil Engineering. I also feel more comfortable in this career, as it suits me better. As hobbies, I really enjoy carving and making sculptures, sewing, and I love to play music (I play the keyboard/organ). I would like to know more about you so we can share our experiences!

Hola Kati! The most beautiful thing that has happened in my preparatory course to enter Civil Engineering is the confidence it has given me that I didn't have before - I feel much better having gone through this course. Also, there's a saying they have told me that I think is lovely: This difficulty I have is not more than me, it will make me stronger. The problem I have isn't that strong, and it will only make me stronger. The prep course gives me so much confidence in my abilities and that's the most amazing thing.

Peter - I am so thankful for your comments! It's true that I'm working towards improving my community, and I would love to know more about what you do and talk more. If you'd like to know more about my community of Amaru, I would love to share that information with you.
