Evelyn, 21, is a graduate of the Universidad Catolica de El Salvador where she obtained an Advanced Technical Certificate in Tourism Development. She lives at home with her mother, a homemaker, two older brothers, older sister, younger brother, and younger sister.

Evelyn had originally hoped to pursue a career in nursing, but the financial hardship for her family would have been too great. But she says, I don’t regret it because even though at first it was really hard to adapt, it has allowed me to visit truly beautiful places in my country that I’d never been before. I can say that I love it now.
