Leticia holds a special place in everyone's heart. Despite her hardships, she is humble, always smiling and optimistic about her future. Both of Leticia's parents died from HIV/AIDS when she was just a toddler. Leticia was sent to live with her grandmother, but when a concerned teacher went to check on Leticia at her grandmother's house, it was discovered that the grandmother was an alcoholic who was neglecting Leticia. This amazing school teacher took Leticia home with her, to live with her. This is a VERY rare occurance, as it is almost unheard of to take in a child that is not your family. Leticia has thrived under the care of her teacher! She loves skipping (jumping rope) and mathematics. She is disciplined in her studies and hopes to become a teacher!
