Hello Everyone! My name is Jessica and I am so overwhelmed with gratitude and happiness in joining with Mayan Families to be able to give back. As a young girl, I watched as my parents collected toys and school supplies all year long and on Christmas, the Mazariegos would host an amazing gift grab for all the underprivileged kids of the town. I cannot begin to put into words how this created a path for my own life. I am a daughter of two immigrant parents from Guatemala and I will forever cherish their hard work and sacrifice to gift my sister and I an amazing education.
As you all know, I will become Mrs. Duran soon (eeeeek) and I am excited to share that I have partnered with this organization to raise funds to provide anything that a child may need to succeed in school. This includes, supplies, books, school clothes, shoes, ect. Education is something that became important to me through watching my mom clean houses and becoming the valedictorian of her class at UCLA to watching my younger sister go off to college before me. I believe that every child should be exposed to an amazing education no matter what their circumstance. My bridal shower is coming up and instead of gifts I would like all of my guests to instead donate to this special cause. I cannot wait to see you all & thank you from the bottom of my heart!
XOXO Future Mrs. Duran
