Hi Daniel. Thank you for your message. Good luck to you too!

I'm 18 years old now and I still have two years of school to complete. Because of my age, I can't be in the normal school system, so I've started in a different school with a different system. The teachers are helping me a lot and I'm managing my time well. I hope I can complete the final two years without problems and then continue studying so I can get a professional qualification.
Hi Manuel...
Feel encouraged and work hard . Nice time...

    Padre excelled in primary school and was ranked number four in his class. However, with six children to take care of, his family struggles to make ends meet.
