I am Lucy, and I was born in the community of Los Pozos, a community that is 70 km from the town of Yapacani, Bolivia. I was raised by my mom and grandma; my father abandoned us Thanks to Chalice Lucy was able to continue her studies when he found out that my mom was pregnant. I grew up and studied up to the 6th grade. I then came out to the town of Yapacani and entered the boarding home called Cedinc Don Bosco to be able to continue my studies.
It is there that I was signed up in the Chalice Sponsorship Programme. From then on I received great support from my sponsors. I now live with a family who are my mom's friends. In 2010 I graduated from high school, where I was also able to get to know Jesus.
I am now studying in the Mary Help of Christians Institute in Yapacani the technical career of tailoring. I am learning how to cut, sew and design work and dress attire.
Thank you, my dear sponsors, for the great support in my studies; to my lovely mother Calixta and my grandma Zenobia; for their love, dedication and support to get ahead in the world.
May God illuminate you always and bless your hearts.
