I joined the center when I was a child, at the age of 9. I experienced the most wonderful moments there because throughout my childhood, I had a lot of fun, learned many things, and they taught me how to be more sociable with people, to interact healthily with everyone, to appreciate each thing they gave me, and to value the effort of every person who made a donation. I learned to say thank you for everything and for all things.

During the time I was there, they helped me with my school assignments, explained things to me that I didn't understand, and they always instilled in me that school was the most important thing and that I had to put in effort. We also consistently reinforced values.

I loved being there, and I enjoyed my stay very much because every time we had a problem with a classmate, they always made us solve it by talking calmly. Whenever we needed advice, the teachers always provided it. They always cared about us and made us feel at home, and they certainly succeeded.

I can affirm that my time at the center was very positive; it was wonderful. There are many anecdotes from there that made my childhood and adolescence take a very different turn, getting to know great people and learning to be grateful for everything. Specially to learned that if I can help people in need, just as I was helped, I truly appreciate it.

At this moment, I only have one year left to finish my degree in Law, and that is part of the motivation that was instilled in me at CEDIC.

Thank you!
