11 years old. Favorite movie: Chicken Little

Rain or shine Israel always has an amazing smile. His positive attitude spreads happiness to everyone around him. Israel is the only brother to one older and one younger sister who all help mom on the weekends make the beautiful and colorful native indigenous clothing only found in the highlands of Guatemala.

Israel loves fùtbol and dreams of someday playing for Barcelona. However, sports aren’t the only skills Israel has: he has a natural hand at sketching and likes to read and write poetry. In his own words: “me encantan las poemas” – I love poems.

Israel’s father left for the United States two years ago and he has struggled with the separation. Every Saturday he has the opportunity to speak with his father; of which Israel looks very forward too!

Jovenes Juntos wants to continue providing Israel with assistance in homework, begin weekly sketching classes, purchase books of poetry and offer him group counseling to help with his parent’s separation.
