Liset Dayana Gomez Ballesteros
Date of birth: December 16, 2006
I live with my parents and siblings. My father’s name is Jorge Enrique Ballesteros Calderon, and he is 34 years old. My mother’s name is Adriana Paola Gomez Hernandez, and she is 32 years old. I have two siblings: Luisa Fernanda, and Jhoan Camilo. They are 13 and 12 years old respectively. My father works in construction. I like to eat chicken, although nutrition in our home is poor due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church, and I attend school daily from 6:45am to 2:00pm. I am in first grade and my favorite subject is Spanish.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
Our house has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The walls and floor are made of concrete, and the roof is made of metal sheets. It is located in the “Altos de la Florida” neighborhood in Soacha. We have electricity and gas, but there is no sewer system. Water arrives twice per week, and we have to collect it in containers to use it for cooking, bathing, and drinking. The weather is cold and the streets are unpaved.
