Keny | Silvia

I met Silvia on my first visit to a school. I will never forget the stares I received walking up to that preschool. If you have ever felt like an alien, that is about all I can compare it to. But moments later, the children ran up and shook my hand and said the token "Hi, How are you?" That is about all the english a lot of people know. It still brings a smile to my face when people say that. 

Silvia is the oldest of 4 children. She has a sister named Sunshine and two brothers whose names are Trancy and Walter. They are such a precious family, and I was lucky enough to spend the afternoon with Silvia's mom one day. Silvia's mom is 22 years old and got married at 16. Neither of the two work so the kids go several days with out food. What I loved about Eva, Silvia's mom, is the joy and hospitality she had. The whole time we chatted she was smiling from ear to ear. 

Silvia is a huge chatter and loves to dance. She steals every show. You can always find her in the front of the room, the front of the line or the front of the dance. My family is now Silvia's sponsor and I am so glad we can help her accomplish her dreams.
