I remember that every year they called us to write letters for our sponsors. Well, every six months. In my case it was Mr. Thurston to whom, wherever he is, I thank him because without his support, I would not be where I am. I wouldn't be where I want to be.
I am an example of the hard work of an entire Children International team that coordinates to make the dreams of children and youths come true. I am very grateful to those who are sponsoring, to those who are donating a grain of sand for this world. They are changing lives, changing realities.
My words of thanks to the sponsors who are far from us is “Thank you.” Because of the distance, we cannot give them a hug. We cannot tell them in person how grateful we are for everything they have done for us. They are not only feeding, they are not just donating an amount of money; they are feeding dreams. They are donating better lives to people.
In the future, I would love to work in an organization that watches over the rights of children around the world, such as UNICEF or the UN, and associating it with CI would be the best thing. We could have a very big impact for communities by going to those that perhaps lack water, electricity.
I want to do a postgraduate degree in community psychology and be able to work in an agency where I can always be on the move, always be with people, doing social work.
