Jose (14) is a loving child who has been a part of the program since 2012. He is one of our more advanced English students and enjoys participating in class and playing with his classmates; he says he is studying hard so he can build a better life for himself. A naturally shy boy, he has surprising confidence when speaking English! Jose lives with his family in a small, very simple home. His favorite food is chicken, and his favorite activities are going on field trips with our local program, especially the annual beach trip. He absolutely adores his English teacher and the food at Casa de los Sueños. He dreams of one day visiting the United States. The values most important to him are listening and respect.
