A Success Story
But when we connected Iris was there with her Papi, Gumersindo, to give me the best news - she has just been chosen for a U.S. AID scholarship to study business psychology in Minneapolis, Minnesota for two years. She was beaming with excitement and delight and Gumersindo, a quiet man, was visibly proud. Iris is shy about speaking English now, and I imagine she will start off in an intensive class (her scholarship begins in August) and - since she's a very bright and joyful person - will soon be chatting happily. May these two years be a blessing for her and for her family!
