Meet Ana Elvira, one of the girls in the Starfish mentorship group “Corazones de Mar” (Heart of the Sea). She is 15 now and more than halfway through the 8th grade year. Though it takes her a while to get from her village to the mentoring space in Solola, she looks forward to spending time with her compañeras. She appreciates being close to the girls, even those who she doesn’t go to school with.
Ana is not yet sure what track she will focus on in high school, but has been busy trying to decide. The Corazones have been hearing from representatives from the different senior high schools in Solola so that they can make an informed choice on their career paths.
Ana Elvira is generously sponsored by Alan and Barb Steger.
