Isidro counts down his three best moments of 2018 at NPH Perú. January 2, 2019 - Peru
Isidro takes a break from his work and studies.
About 10 years ago, a child with many dreams came to NPH. Today that same child, named Isidro, is almost 20. He is studying web development and technical support and feels he is doing very well academically and personally. As the calendar changes from 2018 to 2019, Isidro shares his best moments from 2018 and his goals for the future.
Reunion with his brothers and sisters
In 2018 Isidro had an exciting time visiting his stepsister and brothers. Visiting family is always very comforting for him. “My sister was very happy to see me. I can’t explain the words I felt when I saw her.” At NPH Perú, we teach our youth to appreciate the small details in the gifts that life brings. This particular moment motivates Isidro to pursue his goals.
Spending time with his grandmother
His grandma is a very important person in his life. Due to her age, it’s hard for her to visit Isidro, so he tries his best to go to her. “You’re so much taller than the last time we saw each other!” she laughed during their most recent visit. Isidro always remembers her with love.
Academic success at NPH Perú
Isidro worked hard in 2018 to reach his goals in school. And it all paid off. He is ranked third in his class and he’s happy he put in the hard work to succeed.
Looking to the New Year
Isidro knows he must be better in everything he does. He expects to be the highest achieving student in his class by the end of next year. He is third place now, but he wants more. “I’m not there yet, but I’m going to be the best. That’s a fact.”
Isidro has learned many things at NPH. He knows he has the backing of his NPH family in every step he takes. And he is thankful that NPH Perú continues to support him and his dreams.
