In August we visited one of our Gibson Soto Foundation students, Mayra, who lives in Santiaguillo, Mexico. Since the pandemic began, our students have been studying from home and we felt it was time to start visiting each of them and their families. We will be creating a series of short documentaries about our students and their families.
Mayra’s family is economically challenged. Annually, her family income is $1200 (2000 pesos monthly). Mayra is top of her class and gives great effort to achieve this success. Her family is very proud her.
As a gift, Mayra’s family cooked us an amazing lunch of Pozole, and gave us vegetables from their garden and fresh cheese. We are humbled to know such amazing people like Mayra and her family exist in this world.
Mayra is studying to achieve her bachelor’s in environmental engineering and hopes she can someday help preserve the planet. Mayra, and others like her, are making amazing accomplishments despite the obstacles they have.
