Commitment to community reciprocity was key to identifying Yohanna for TEP’s high school scholarship in 2016.
We partnered with her elementary school for various service-learning projects over the years and wanted our partner school to benefit far beyond the projects completed by faculty-led
and and students
This meant the deserving student selection was made by the school principal. Yohanna's scholarship extends beyond tuition and include text books, uniforms, and basic school supplies. Here is Johanna’s story.
My name is Yohanna, I live near the western border between Guatemala and Belize. My family consists of my mom, dad, two brothers, and me.
Although our family is small, we help each other in everything. I am passionate about playing soccer, it is my favorite sport. My favorite color is red, and I love to sing, read books, and write poems invented by my own words. I am not much of a talker, I am really shy. I am thankful to TEP for helping me to achieve my high school studies.
I also acknowledge God and give thanks to him. I promise to work and study hard. I really want to be someone in life.
I want to achieve my studies and my goals in life and TEP is helping me to do this.
