Bio

Griselda lives with her sister and their uncle’s family because her mom passed away. Her family is very loving and supportive. Griselda is currently in 6th grade and loves math class. She dreams of becoming a teacher and wants to take specialized classes in computation.

January 3, 2015

Griselda finished her school year at the end of November. Throughout the year, she received extra needed school supplies for her classes. She was struggling in some of her classes, but continues to attend the English class taught by New Song staff. She is intelligent and really loves school. Through her sponsorship, Griselda received her backpack, uniform, and school shoes. She was also able to receive a scientific calculator that she needed for her math class. Griselda has begun taking a cosmetology class sponsored through her high school. She really loves being able to learn about how to do nails and hair. Thanks to Griselda’s sponsorship, she has been able to improve her performance on several school projects by printing out maps for geography class as well as visit an internet café to do the research she needed.

November 2015

Griselda is excited to be sponsored again. She is a bright girl with a lot of energy and a great sense of humor. She is working hard to do well and succeed in her classes. She has been struggling some in her Spanish class but will pass for the year. In Nicaragua, the school year goes from February to the end of November. Griselda is glad to be on break from school and will start her fourth year of high school next year. Griselda’s top grades are in English and physical education. Through her sponsorship, Griselda was able to go on a class field trip to the mountains of Nicaragua and visit a waterfall. She also went to the New Song Clinic when she wasn’t feeling well and received medical care.

April 2016

Griselda began her fourth year of high school at the beginning of February. She is such a hard worker in school even when she isn’t doing as well as she would like. Last year, she struggled some in her Spanish class. She passed for the year and is thankful to have moved on to her fourth year. Thanks to her sponsorship, she received her uniform, backpack, shoes, school supplies, and an athletic outfit to be able to participate in her physical education class. Griselda’s school is undergoing repairs which made the students unable to attend class. The students, for the next 3-4 months, are attending school on Saturdays and Sundays for the entire days versus the usual half day school. Griselda doesn’t really like this new schedule of class because she doesn’t enjoy being there for the entire day. Recently, Griselda attended a training on becoming a Sunday school teacher. Currently, she isn’t a teacher but may start teaching as the Sunday school grows.

Fall 2016

Griselda received her second uniform and pair of school shoes of the year in July. She is halfway through with her fourth year of high school and is working hard to maintain her grades in her classes. Her top grades are in physical education (100%), English (90%), and civics (89%). She struggles some in her math class as they learn about the quadratic formula. Her class spent the first semester studying geography and has now moved onto studying economics. With her uncle’s permission, Griselda has started dating a boy in her class. Her sister and cousins like to joke with her, but she has done a good job also keeping her grades up. With Nicaraguan Independence Day approaching, Griselda has been studying Nicaraguan history, symbols of the other Central American countries, and about the life and works of Nicaraguan poet and author, Ruben Dario.
