About

Cristian studied at a small rural high school outside of Ollantaytambo. He is older than the other students, since he was forced to begin elementary school much later due to family troubles. Growing up, he suffered family challenges but through perseverance, graduated high school as a leader against all odds.

Hola amigos de The School Fund, es un gusto saludarlos a todos. Sé que nunca nos conocimos en persona pero quiero compartirles mis logros y experiencias en la Casa Mosqoy.

Mi nombre es Cristian Guerra Acuña, pertenezco a la comunidad de Tanccac, distrito de Ollantaytambo, provincia de Urubamba, departamento de Cusco. Mi comunidad esta aproximadamente dos horas de Cusco en bus.

Yo estudie en mi pueblo la primaria y secundaria. Luego, tuve una oportunidad de entrar a Mosqoy desde allí comience a estudiar la carrera de turismo en el instituto Khipu, la cual termine mis estudios el 20 de octubre del 2017. Ahora, trabajo en el campo de turismo en la agencia de Lorenzo Expeditions y me gusta y apasiona los viajes, conocer culturas, costumbres de mi país y la interrelación con diferentes tipos de personas ya sean nacionales o extranjeros.

El 8 d mayo del 2018 obtuve mi titulo profesional con la carrera profesional en Guia Oficial de Turismo lo cual me siento orgulloso y agradecido con Mosqoy por haberme ayudado a lograr mi meta y sueño.

En mis tiempos libres me gusta jugar futbol y correr por las mañanas también cocinar y viajar con la familia.

Gracias es todo lo que puedo contarle, sobre mi persona.


Hello friends at The School Fund, it’s a pleasure to say hello to you all. I know that we’ve never met in person but I want to share my achievements and experiences of Casa Mosqoy with you.

My name is Cristian Guerra Acuña and I am from the community of Tanccac, (Ollantaytambo district, Urubamba province, Cusco department). My community is approximately two hours from Cusco by bus.

I attended primary and secondary school in my town. Later, I had the opportunity to enter Mosqoy where I began to study Tourism in the Khipu Institute, and I finished studying on October 20th 2017. Now, I work Tourism, in an agency called Lorenzo Expeditions and I like to travel, learn about new cultures, my country’s customs and the link between people from different backgrounds, either from Peru or abroad.

I received my professional title: Official Tourism Guide on May 8th of this year, for which I feel proud and grateful to Mosqoy for helping me achieve my goal and dream.

In my free time, I like to play football and run in the mornings. Also, I enjoy cooking and travelling with my family.

Thank you is all that I can say to you all.
Hola, soy estudiante de La Casa Mosqoy. En esta oportunidad quiero hacerle llegar mis mas sinceros agradecimientos por todo lo que usted hace por mi. Dándome la oportunidad de poder ser una mejor persona tanto en el ámbito laboral, social, y personal. Su apoyo no es en vano. Yo lo estoy aprovechando a lo máximo porque las oportunidades no se desperdician. Yo siempre seré sinceramente agradecido y siempre lo tendré presente lo bueno que usted ha sido conmigo. Bien dicho todo esto le quiero contar que ya dentro de poco me graduare. En estos momentos estoy haciendo mis tesis correspondientes para mi graduación. La verdad me está yendo muy bien, yo estoy poniendo todo de mi parte. Mi meta es ser un estudiante ejemplar para mis hermanos, mi familia y mi comunidad de donde yo vengo. Con esto quiero hacerles saber que todo en esta vida es posible si ponemos todo de nuestra parte. Las limitaciones no los ponemos nosotros mismos, y que eso debe de cambiar por el bien de cada uno. Esto si lo logramos estaremos aportando un poco para que nuestra comunidad o país desarrolle, que podamos ver la vida de manera positiva. Y si podemos porque la decisión está en nuestras manos. Yo ya me sume al cambio gracias al conocimiento obtenido por los tres años y medio de estudio que obtuve. Esto me sirve y me servirá para toda mi vida. Por todo esta oportunidad tan grande que me diste solamente me queda agradecerte y decirte que te quiero y aprecio bastante a ustedes. Dicho todo esto paso a decirle un poco sobre la Casa Mosqoy y todo lo bueno y positivo que está pasando. Yo personalmente me siento como en familia compartiendo momentos lindos con mis amigos y compañeros- porque no decirlo que son mis hermanos. El afecto y la convivencia que tenemos nos une. Gracias familia Mosqoy por estas experiencias tan únicas que jamás en mi vida se van a repetir. Yo siempre les llevare en mi corazón porque me enseñaron a vivir muchas pero muchísimas experiencias que dejan huellas para toda la vida. Gracias es todo lo que puedo decir.

Hello, I am a student from Casa Mosqoy. This is an opportunity for me to send you my most sincere thanks for all that you have done for me. Giving me the opportunity to be a better person through laboural, social, and personal ambition. Your support is not in vain. I am putting all of this to use because opportunities like this are rare. I will always be very grateful and will always remember the good that you have done for me. Anyways, I would like to tell you that I will soon be graduating and I’m currently doing my corresponding thesis. It’s going very well and I’m giving it my all. My goal is to be an exemplary student for my siblings, my family, and the community that I’m from. With that, I would like them all to know that everything in life is possible if we put in the work. We are the ones who make limits for ourselves, and if that changes it will be for the good of us all. If we do this, we would be helping so that our community and country can advance, that we see life through a positive lense. And we can do this, because the decision is in our hands. I have already decided to make this change thanks to the 3 and a half years of knowledge that I’ve gained from my studies. This serves me well, and will serve me well for my whole life. For this great opportunity I’ve been given I can only thank you, say that I love, and that I appreciate you very much. I’d also like to tell you a little bit about Casa Mosqoy and all the good and positive things that are happening. I personally feel like I am with family, sharing moments with my friends (but it's really like they're my brothers and sisters). The affection and cooperation that we have together unites us. Thank you to the Mosqoy family for these experiences I've been given, so unique, that may never occur again in my life. I will always carry you in my heart because you taught me many, many lessons that will be carried throughout my life. Thank you is all that I can say.
