“I have been working in the social sector for more than twenty years. I am very blessed that I get to work with people. I run a program that teaches teachers how to give quality education with a modern twist. Here in Nicaragua there is a traditional approach to education but we are trying to change that. We encourage children to think critical and to ask questions. I believe by giving children good education you are not only investing in their future but also in the next generations to come. Just because you are born poor doesn’t mean you don’t have a future. You just sometimes need an extra push.”
