Daniel (Danny), age 25, has overcome many obstacles. His early life was split between Mexico City and Oaxaca City. When his father died when Danny was 18, his mom abandoned him. He says that not having parental support was a painful experience he wouldn't wish on anyone. Left alone in the world at 18, many youth loose their way.
Seeing much injustice in the world, he dreamt of becoming a lawyer to help others. CdK started assisting him with school fees and essential expenses in 2018 while he was attending a local Law university. He maintained excellent grades while working part time as a restaurant waiter in the evenings. Just recently he passed his legal Bar exam, and will soon pass his final oral exam/presentation. Courageous students like this ARE making the world a better place; here's the mini-interview:
Q: Danny, why is education important to you?
A: Education will open the doors to the job industry, which is a great advantage here in Mexico, especially since I want to have a better life and more opportunities than my parents.
Q: What do you dream of for your future?
A: I would like to get a good job that allows me to develop professionally and acquire new skills. I would like to have the opportunity to help others who are going through the same issues I was having when I was studying (i.e. lack of mentors/parents, financial support).
Q: What would you like to say to our many Donors who've made your education possible?
A: I would like to thank each one of the donors, because what I have accomplished (like passing the Bar Exam) would not have been possible without their support over three years. Everyone who makes a donation plays an important role in our future and also in the future of Casa de Kids' program. CdK has been a great inspiration for the type of human being I wish to become. They have supported me (and the other students) without knowing much about us, and they have faith we will take advantage of the opportunity they are providing.
