My name is Cruz, I am 28 years old and 1 year ago I started weaving bracelets for Producciones Bella Vista. When we was little, my 4 sisters and I went to school, but we did not finish. I dreamed of studying but I could not continue. I got married at age 19 and had my daughter Felicidad (Happiness) at age 20. Before I worked with Wakami I would stay at my house all day long and get bored. My husband was glad when I got the job. I work because I want to give my daughter a good life. I dream of helping her tostudy so she can have more opportunities than I did.
I was born in Guatemala, I’m in love with life, with colors, with art and with exploring and learning from this world. I’m a firm believer that passion is what make things beautiful. I’m interested in alternative education, performing arts, women empowerment and dogs. I worked on the fashion industry for a while, even though I love it, I always felt I was lacking a why, a purpose. This is why I now work at Wakami, telling stories and changing the reality of my country one character at a time
