Samy Valentina Herrera Guacarí
Date of birth: October 9, 2009
I live with my mom. Her name is Sandra Milena Guacarí Cabezas, and she is 31 years old. To support our family, my mom works at a laundry.
I like to eat pasta, although nutrition in our home is poor due to our economic situation. I don’t go to church, and I attend school daily from 7:00am to 3:00pm.
MY HOME AND COMMUNITY
Our house has one bedroom 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.
