I was accepted into TLC in Spring 2014 and I graduated in September 2016 with a Leadership and Business degree.
After graduation, I started working for a NGO called “Casa de Luz,” as an English teacher. I work with children and sometimes as a translator. I work Monday through Friday. I study Computer Literacy on the weekends in Universidad Pedagógica Nacional in Comayagua.
I will do the SAT test through this college because I want to continue studying at the end of this year.
I want to get a Bachelor’s degree in Administrative Pedagogics. After that, I will be working and having my own business.
My name is Nidia Yasbek Chirinos, I am 23 years and I am from Isletas, Sonaguera, Colon. I graduated from TLC on February 20, 2016. TLC was a great experience because I was able to learn many new skills, now I have a better opportunity in life. Being at TLC was a blessing that God gave to me. It was there that I met special people and also many friends. I am married now, I am the mother of a cute baby boy, and I am a teacher.
I am teaching at a private bilingual school called Sonaguera‘s School. I teach first and fourth grade boys who are very special to me. I work at the school Monday through Friday from 7 am to 3pm. After work I tutor 2 children in English every day at my house. My plan is to continue studying to be a professional teacher, and I want to start my studies this year. TLC is an institution that provides changes in many women’s lives and this is proven through our accomplishments and opportunities after we graduate.
First year student at TLC
I am 23 years old. I am from Tacoa, Colon. I have one brother and two sisters. I am the eldest. Studying and living at TLC has been the best experience I have ever had, and I have only been here 2 months! I have always wanted to have an opportunity like this and I am thankful for it! I always wished with all my heart to be accepted and to have the opportunity to be part of this beautiful family that I have learned a lot about. It has helped me to grow and to learn about values. For me TLC is the best thing that could have happened to me.
Learning English has been one of my biggest dreams. At TLC, I am learning English which makes me happy because it will accomplish one of my goals, which is to teach English to other people in my community. I am very thankful for the opportunity I have to study at TLC because I am learning many things to help others. Being at TLC I have gotten the strength and courage to make changes in my life and my community. I hope my community will notice the changes. With God’s help and trusting in Him, I know that every single dream I have will be accomplished.
Second Year Student at TLC
I am 19 years old. I am from San Jose de Comayagua. I have three brothers and I am the only sister. I am the second oldest. Before coming to TLC, I imagined myself going to another country for work.
After one year of being at TLC I now imagine myself being a leader, a person who will help others to develop their skills and abilities, a different person, but mostly an ethical leader. I am looking forward to learning more about Leadership and developing my abilities as a leader.
I also look forward to learning about community development. I look forward to learning what I am passionate about and what I will do when I graduate. I want to be a leader with good character.
Something I am passionate about is to work for an NGO to help children who don’t have parents or work with people who have problem with drugs. I really would like to help others more.
Third year student at TLC
I am 26 years old and was born in Gracias a Dios, in the northeast of Honduras. I am from Barra Patuca, Gracias a Dios. I have 5 siblings, with the same mom and dad as I. But I also have 11 half-siblings. So in total I have 16 siblings. I am one of the youngest.
My time as TLC is incomparable. I am so glad to be one of the students at TLC. Since being here, I have learn so many new things, besides English. My character, my vision, my spiritual life, my way of thinking… it has all been transformed. TLC made me see the capacity that I have to change my country and to develop my community.
My hope is to work hard to fill the needs of my community. There is a lot to be done. One of my biggest hopes is to see my community developed and the people changed.
My hope for my community is to improve the quality of the education system so the children can have more opportunities to study. I hope more opportunities come for employment, to improve the health system, fix and build streets and highways, etc.…
When I finish my studies at TLC, I am going to work very hard to start and grow my business. I also will help the people in my community like single mothers and young people. Some years later I will run for Mayor of my community, after being Mayor I will run for Congress Woman of my community.
