Being part of FundaVida helped me recover. I didn’t even want to eat, I was very sad, I was doing badly in school and I even thought about committing suicide. When the teachers realized my situation they supported me in more ways than I could imagine. I got into all the courses I could and started going to the FundaVida psychologist.
All this help has made me see things in a different way, that I can move forward and that I can have hope. It has not been easy, but over time, I have improved my self-esteem, my confidence and have started to value life more. I even started a small business selling “apretados”, selling home made ice cream.
