Alicia has helped her son move forward on her own since her husband abandoned her and she became mother and father to their child. When she has free time she likes very much to go walking with her son and above all she likes to share with him one of his favorite dishes which is the tasty "Aguadito de Pato" or Duck Stew. Due to her limited economic means Alicia only completed Middle School, but she would have liked very much to be a fashion designer.

Thus, she can improve her income and in that way she will be able to continue working and struggling each day in order to make her greatest dream a reality: "To have her own home."
