Ricardo Valderrama Espinosa

School year:

Third

Ricardo Valderrama Espinoza and I am 16 years old. Currently I am studying at Don Bosco, Popotlan but due to the pandemic, now the classes are at home with some days at the school but in truth has been quite difficult for me as I do not have a computer. I need to go to an internet shop that is in the neighboring town to be able to send my activities. Having a computer would make things much easier for me. The teachers pass us the content of the subject on USB and with the help of the computer I can read more carefully and not be under pressure of my time running out in the internet shop. I would also save the costs of a two way journey and access expense. Anything I can do to help save costs, I want to do as we are definitely a low income family.
