Daniel Santiago's story

His name is Daniel and he is taking a morning course in cooking that will entitle him to work in culinary. At home, he has everything he needs to develop personally and academically. He lives with his parents and with his older brother, who is studying to become an architect. Last year, Daniel finished high school and received support from his school to undertake additional activities in an institution where he took a course in bakery. He was a very good student and looks forward to continuing with his studies in this area. As mentioned before, he lives with his parents and with his brother. His parents work transporting kids to their school and have a high demand, thanks to the good service they offer. Both his parents also finished high school. His mother studied computer science and tailoring supported by her parents and his father studied automotive mechanics and after finishing, he was enrolled in a renowned car company where he worked hard for nine years. Daniel’s mother worked also repairing computers and networks, but not for long. She then worked as an haute couture tailor for a renowned company for two years. Her work was appreciated and she had a good income to support her children’s studies. Daniel was one of the best students of his generation and received an honorable mention when he graduated. He took part in different research projects at school, directed a dancing and acting group and helped some of his friends to improve their performance, since he was good himself. Well, this is just a small part of his life and his everyday activities. Thank you for your support and for helping many students to improve their performance at school and their economy.
