María José is an artistic and free-spirited girl who always has a smile on her face, and she aims to please everyone around her. As a student, she is calm, attentive, and quick to learn. Little can damper her spirits, and one compliment will brighten her spirits for the rest of the day. She lives with her mother and grandparents, who are able to pay for part of her expenses, but she still needs help with her tuition. Her mother is a kindergarten teacher in Quebracho, an aldea north of Copan Ruinas. We’re hoping that the compliments of a sponsor will help to brighten her career at Mayatan.
