Proud Salvi Daughter
By Angie Rivas

As a kid, my father grew up with out a father in the city of Chirilagua, San Miguel. He and his two older siblings helped raise their 9 younger siblings. This caused my dad to drop out of school at the age of only 8 years old.

Now as an adult, my father makes sure we have everything we need: A home, food, shoes, and most importantly, an education. He taught us that we shouldn’t take things for granted and when or if an opportunity comes up, that we should seize it.

I am the proud daughter of a Salvadoreño Father.
