Rocío lives with her mother, grandparents and sister in a small two-room house. The outer walls are built out of cement blocks and inside there is sheet metal to create rooms. The floor is part cement and part earth. Rocío’s mother works in a hotel making beds and earns about Q3000 ($380) per month. Rocío’s father no longer lives with or supports the family. Unfortunately, her grandmother has diabetes and needs medication, which is paid for by Rocío’s mother and her grandfather.
Rocío’s favorite color is pink and her favorite animals are cats. Rocío likes to listen to music in English, especially romantic songs. In school Rocío likes social sciences as she is interested in finding out more about people. Her goal for this year is to make sure that she passes her classes.
In her spare time Rocío loves to read stories. She likes it so much that her dream job is to be an author and write her own stories for other people to enjoy.
