When do you begin working at the Olancho Aid Foundation?
January 20, 2015
How did you find out about Olancho Aid?
I studied at Instituto Oscar Cardenal Rodriguez (IOCR), the Spanish-speaking college prep high school, and since then I have followed the projects of Father Richard Donahue.
What is your role at Olancho Aid?
I’m the administrator at Escuela Nazareth, our special needs school.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
I love my job because it was always my dream to belong to an organization that helps people who need it. I like seeing how the students, the parents, the employees, and everyone else who takes time to spend time with us learn new things.
Do you have a favorite memory from your time with Olancho Aid?
I had an accident playing soccer and had to get a cast. The next day I got to school and an student ran to me and help me get out of the car. He helped me to my office and gave me a kiss on my injured leg. My heart stopped in that moment.
Share a fun fact about yourself.
I love to go out and walk and run while listening to music.
