The “Camino” means “life journey” in many ways. When I walk I like to look far away. I like to keep my eyes on the horizon. I know that at some point my next “stop” or my “goal” will become apparent to me. I have goals, dreams, and wishes. I keep walking toward them. My short term goals are normal for a girl my age; family, travel, work, studying etc. My long term goals are also very meaningful to me and I am conscious that I will be committed to them for the remainder of my life. Starting the school is only the beginning of the construction of a beautiful network of good people. When the time comes to walk into the next phase of my “Camino”, I will have many doors to knock on. I know for sure that I will not be alone.

In the mountains above Xela lies a piece of land. My dream is to build a school there. A place with horses. A safe place for orphans to learn and play. I wish to give them education and to mold them to be the future leaders of my country Guatemala.
