I live with my parents, uncle, and siblings. My father’s name is Armando Suarez Pinzon, and he is 30 years old. My mother’s name is Teresa Pinzon Santamaria, and she is also 30 years old. I have two siblings, Jeison and Diana. They are 14 and 11 years old respectively. My father and my uncle wash cars to support our family. I like to eat beans, although nutrition in our home is poor due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church or school. My overall health is good, although sometimes I get colds because of the weather.
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.
