José lives in Jocotenango with his mother, brother and sister. Their house is made of sheet metal and has a cement floor. The house is made up of only one room, and there are two beds that the family share. José’s mother is not currently working and the family rely on relatives to help out with household costs. José’s father does not live with them and does not currently support them financially.
José’s favorite color is blue and his favorite animals are dogs. José likes to listen to children’s songs, and the one he likes best is called ‘La Mariposita’ which means ‘The Little Butterfly’. In school José’s favorite time of the day is playtime. This year his goal is to be able to draw cool things like the pictures on display in his classroom.
When he grows up, José would like to do the same job as his father, a demolition worker knocking down houses so that new houses can be built. José said that he wants to do this job so that he can be close to his father.
