Meet Chonita, a 21-year-old from downtown Santiago who is heading into her senior year of high school. She is a member of the Rosas de Guadalupe mentoring group in the Starfish One by One Program.
Chonita, whose father passed away and whose mother never received any schooling, is the most academically advanced student in the Rosas group. In 2012, Chonita will start her training as a future Starfish One by One mentor!
If you want to leave Chonita a message, you can comment below. We’ll collect them and send them to her, and update here when she writes back! (Note: this can take up to six months due to infrastructure issues in Guatemala.)
