Mynor’s Story

My name is Mynor, I am 16 years old and graduated Básico in Ciudad Vieja this November. I am one of the five graduates chosen to attend the first Good Academy.

Proud parents

My parents are proud of me for graduating and for being chosen for this opportunity. Without it, I would not be able to continue my education. With this scholarship, I will be able to support my parents in the future. I was responsible for serving beverages to attendees during the NDG 10-year Anniversary Gala at the famous Saúl Mendez restaurant, attending to all the guests during the evening. This was my first time being in such a fancy restaurant, and my first time interacting closely with Guatemalans from different social classes.

Opening a door towards a brighter future

While studying at Niños de Guatemala, I’ve learned to be respectful to other people, to take responsibility and to be punctual, but above all I have learned that you have to work hard for what you want. I am proud that I applied myself and graduated secondary school. There is still a long road ahead to achieving my dream of owning my own hotel, but I am thankful for the support and training of Good Academy to empower me to do so. I will be able to provide my future children with a good education, a stable home environment and meaningful jobs. For me, this opportunity has opened a door towards a brighter future.
