Erlin is a tremendously driven young man who works very hard to keep his grades above 80%. This is not always easy for a student who got a late start. He comes from a household of nine people who used to live across from Mayatan’s old location.
Erlin’s grandfather was the school watchman, and the teachers fell in love with his grandchildren, who had no running water and often lacked food. When he has free time, he takes on work in housing construction to help his mother, who is now the sole breadwinner and works as a school janitor. Erlin has a newborn sibling; two of his brothers attend the public schools, and two also attended Mayatan. Erlin is one of those students whose education will truly make a difference to his family.
