Hi, Nthenya!
My name is Marcelo Esteban Mauricio and I'd love to be friends with you and your schoolmates. Tell them to use this journal feature to write to me.
I'd love to get to know you, but I'm too far away to travel to see you, since I live in Argentina, which is in South America. Like I said at the beginning, let's be friends, okay?
Please find attached a picture of me with my aunt Ilda Bravo, my cousins Caro (whose real name is Laura Carolina Bravo) and Cati (whose real name is Adriana Cecilia Bravo) and my nieces Maria Emilia "Mimi" Bravo, Eulogia Bellido and Pochi Bravo de Camaño
Hi donors
Greetings, I am so glad for your kind support that enabled me to join secondary school so as to further my education. When I firstly joined my school I found the environment welcoming. I had jovial moods all the time. There was joyful interaction with teachers, asking them the challenging situation we came across with in the school.
I hope you are fine and Almighty God has protected you wherever you are.
Wishing you all the best and Gods blessings.
