1.7 million Teachers needed! Yes the world does need more teachers! It saddens me, I sit here and cry!
Teachers are amongst one of the many…
Everyday, there are children who die of malnutrition or starvation. They also spend each day wondering when they will receive their next meal. No child should have to live like that. The death rates are apalling in some countries. For instance, in Africa, a child dies of starvation every 2 minutes. Something needs to be done to lessen these bitter statistics. If interested, there`s a program to help raise money for starving children across the globe.
It`s called 30-hour famine. My church does it every year. The website is www.30hourfamine.org If we all work together, we can ALL end world hunger.
Nobody said anything was easy. but, at the same time, you can`t just expect simplicity to be fed to you with a spoon. you have to work a little hard to get somewhere.
You may not agree as of now however, you will thank me in the end when all your hard work has payed off. :)
Please tell us your name:
And your age:
20 years old.
Where are you originally from and where do you currently live?:
I was born and raised in Guayaquil, Ecuador and I am currently living in NYC.
According to your business card – what’s your job title?
I’m a full time athlete and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor.
And how does that compare with what you wanted to do when you were 10 years old?
I’m pretty sure I wanted to be a superhero, so fighting for living is close enough, the most important is that I really enjoy what I do. Every day I wake up and go to work I’m thankful to God for what I have.

‘Celine passed away. I’m sorry’
Had I heard it right? Were they playing a trick on me? This had to be some kind of joke.
I stared so hard till her face became blurry.
It was true; there was no turning back. She was really dead.
I was sick that day, so I didn’t go to school.
Watching Homer strangle Bart was hilarious. That was before Megan, my sister popped.
It looked like she bit into a sour lemon wedge
‘She jumped out. Right out of the window’
I started to laugh so hard. How could she be serious? ‘I’m being punked? Maybe, I’ll get to meet Ashton!’ I said mockingly
‘I’m serious’ she said so grimly, that I had…

The planet Earth is the synthesis territory of all continental hydrographic basins that reproduce permanently through hydrologic cycle. This global reality unites us and encourages us to act in a coordinated way, the only way to solve and overcome political, environmental, social, economic and cultural global order.
