10 years old.--Favorite movie: The Chocolate.-- FactoryGoing into 4th grade

Dinora was born with the gift of sharing. One her favorite pastimes is sharing her time and reading to the youngest kids of the Guaderia every afternoon. She also enjoys reading books for her amusement. It is of no surprise that her d favorite Jovenes Juntos activity of this past year was visiting the library. She wanted to look through every magazine and book she could. However, Dinora also has a great aptitude for sports and especially Capoeria, of which she would like to continue with next year on a regular basis.

Until the beginning of this year, Dinora was living with an abusive father. In her own voice, “ mi papa nos pegaba mucho”- my dad hit us a lot. Dinora, her older sister, older brother and mother are moving on and starting a new life. This adjustment has been quite difficult for her at times, but she still kept up with her schoolwork and utilized the help from the afternoon tutoring.

Jovenes Juntos wants to provide Dinora with continued tutoring, weekly classes of Capoeria, more visits to the library, and group counseling.
