My Story

Hello, what a blessing to greet you! I am Veronica Leticia, and I want to share a little bit about my life with you. I attend the Catholic church once a week together with my family. I am completely sure that Jesus loves me. A teacher of LW collected this information for you and encouraged us to continue trusting in the Almighty. Therefore, I am so grateful for this project. Besides this, my family and I are thankful because the LW staff provides my siblings and me with tasty lunches. My father is Venancio Garcia, and he is 45 years old. He works in our community by growing and cutting coffee beans. While he works outside the home, my mother works hard at home too. Her name is Maria Chingo, and she is 38 years old. To get extra income, she grows green tomatoes, cilantro, radishes, bananas, and coffee for sale. In addition, we raise and sell goats, sheep, hens, and cows. Fortunately, we are healthy.

I am in sixth grade, and classes are face-to-face. I prefer this method because I can do my homework better. We are a humble family, and our priorities are clothes and food supplies. Even though it is difficult for my parents to buy what I need at school, I ask the Lord for his mercy to continue studying. My dream is to become a teacher when I am older. I enjoy Christmastime so much because I enjoy seeing fireworks. I like drinking sodas, but my favorite is Tiki (this is a Guatemalan pineapple soda). My native language is the Quiche dialect, although I would like to learn how to speak English someday. My fourteenth birthday will be in August and what I would like the most is that my parents buy a delicious cake and sing the traditional birthday song for me. Soccer is my favorite sport because it is the most exciting. I leave you now, but I send you many kisses and hugs.

Sincerely yours,

Veronica Leticia Garcia Chingo
