My name is Yomara Hernandez and I am from Nicaragua.
As I stand here today, I not only come close to ending this chapter in my life, but also to recount the past ten wonderful months here. It has been an honor to be a part of this program and to share in this wonderful experience with all of you. An experience in which I obtained a lot of new knowledge, such as self-care, feedback, communication, and many more. Also, during this journey being away from Nicaragua, I have noticed that I am ready to go back and share what I’ve gained as a teacher.
My big vision when I return to Nicaragua is to create more possibility of free education for people in the communities where having education have been difficult. For me education offer a better opportunity in life and better possibility to be more successful. I am determined to create a youth group from NPH, motivate them to share with people with less opportunity.
I would like to thank to my entire NPH family in Seattle. All this experience, vision and knowledge would not have been possible without you. Thank you for putting your trust in me and guiding me through this process. Mona and John, you have been Angels in my life. Thank you for opening your home, heart and sharing wonderful moments with me. Thank you to all my mentors. Thank you to all my teachers in Seattle Central College who guided me in receiving the best education possible!!! I am also thankful to all the Seattle Institute Leadership students, I am so proud of us. I really enjoyed my time together.
I am so excited to go back to Nicaragua and share my experiences in Seattle. I am looking forward to hugging my entire family and tell them how much I missed them. I am also ready to eat a delicious gallopinto and tasty Nacatamal 😊
