Hola! My name is Alejandra. Living at Dorie's Promise has really helped me grow. Before coming here (when I was 9), I really struggled with school. Now, I love school and am learning a lot because my teachers understand how to help me. Of course, I also love to talk, so that's a problem sometimes. When I'm at home, I love being around the other girls. Sometimes we play freeze tag, we dance, we do crafts, and sometimes we just sit and talk. Being here makes me feel comfortable being my real self--the girl who can be shy but quickly comes to life as funny, loving, and energetic with the people I love.
