Good afternoon, my name is Thelma Adele Bautista and I am from Magdalena Milpas Altas. I was given the opportunity to study at the cooking school for 2 years at Love Guatemala. I chose to study at Love Guatemala because many people who have studied there, especially in the cooking school and it caught my attention. It interested me and I wanted to know more not only about cooking but about the staff/organization and their attentiveness towards the students. When they gave me the opportunity to study at Love Guatemala, I never thought that I would learn a lot about making pastries, baking and cooking. It has been an unforgettable experience. It has given me the chance to put everything I have learned into practice. I have sold many goods for occasions such as baby showers, birthdays, weddings and parties. It has been a blessing to study there. Overall it has been a blessing for me to be contacted to work all of these events. My inspiration to have this little café is my family, my children and my husband. They have all been an important part of my life. They supported me while I was going to school at Love Guatemala. At first it was difficult because my children were studying at the same time as I was. But after they finished studying we decided as a family that this family project would better if we all worked together. I have 3 kids, 2 sons and a daughter Together as a family we have made this Café dream possible. Lastly I wanted to thank God for giving me this opportunity and especially Love Guatemala for not only opening their doors to me but to a lot of women, adolescents and children that also have dreams and inspirations And for whatever reason they can’t have a career. They give us the opportunity to study there. Thank you for this support to everyone who is working there. I especially want to give thanks to our sponsors. Without their help we wouldn’t be able to be what we are today. We are very thankful because we get to know a lot of people who work for Love Guatemala and support us. Our sponsors play an important role for us here. You are invited to hopefully come here one day to Magdalena and Love Guatemala. You can even visit my café. It would be our pleasure to have you here in Magdalena Thank you so much and may God bless you. May god give you everything you need as you have helped to support everyone from Love Guatemala. Thank you.
