The Story

My childhood was filled with visits to my aunts and uncles in the serene countryside of El Salvador. The journeys, although long, gradually revealed the profound significance of the traditions and strong work ethics I absorbed during those visits. Over the years, I began to deeply appreciate the values instilled in my character through those trips. The distance between my home and El Salvador seemed to shrink as I fell in love with the people, the picturesque landscapes, the delicious cuisine, and the rich cultural traditions of the region.

El Salvador, despite being a small country, carries a rich historical tapestry. The pre-colonial indigenous tribes, particularly the Lenca and Pipiles, played a pivotal role in shaping the culture of the land. The Lempa River, which now serves as a natural border, once separated the Pipiles to the southwest and the Lencas to the northeast. I proudly consider myself a descendant of both these remarkable tribes.

Through my education and firsthand family experiences, I delved into the history of our nation, including the tumultuous civil war that scarred the country in the 1980s. Due to its strategic location, the department of Morazan bore a heavy brunt during those turbulent times. The aftermath left its towns underdeveloped and its infrastructure in ruins. 

Driven by my love for El Salvador's culture and a desire to promote it in the United States, I create the Dreams Are Possible Foundation. The vision includes not only preserving the rich cultural heritage of my homeland but also making a meaningful difference in the lives of children in El Salvador.
