Luisa Nikol Valencia Rodriguez
Date of birth: January 27, 2009
I live with my parents and my brothers. My father’s name is Juan Manuel Valencia Fernandez, and he is 27 years old. My mother’s name is Lida Leny Rodriguez, and she is 24 years old. I have two brothers, Luis Felipe Valencia Rodriguez, who is 8 years old, and Hammer Yesid Valencia Rodriguez, who is 1 year old. I like to eat eggs, although nutrition in our home is poor because of our economic situation.
I don’t go to church and I attend school daily from 8:00am to 2:00pm. I am in preschool and my favorite subject is art. I have some health issues because I am underweight.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
We live in a rented house. The walls and floor are made of concrete, and the roof is made of metal sheets. It has two bedrooms and one bathroom. 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.
