More about Karen:

My name is Karen Garcia. I grew up in Concepcion de Maria Choluteca, Honduras,

which is a rural community in southern Honduras. In my family, I have four brothers, and a

mother and father. My father is a farmer who grows coffee, corn, and beans. Although we earned income from these crops, we were still quite poor.

While I was in elementary school, I was involved in cultural activities, such as cultural

dance. Following elementary school, I attended high school at La Paz Honduras, and earned an

Elementary Education Degree in 2013. After that, I attended school at The Leadership Center

(TLC) for two and a half years from 2014 to 2016. While at TLC, I learned about leadership,

community development, and business. In 2016, I graduated from TLC, and I received the

opportunity to work as a teacher at a ministry called “Casa de Luz”. At Casa de Luz, I was

involved in ministry, and activities included sharing devotionals with children each day, and

doing activities with poor families around the community.

Now, I am back to the Leadership Center as an English Tutor. My first priority is to help

first year students with their English. Also, I am leading a discipleship group as well, which is a

powerful opportunity for me. This is because I can learn more about the Bible, and at the same

time, I can help the students to grow in their spiritual life. In 2019, I enrolled at the Universidad

National Autonoma de Honduras (UNAH) as a psychologist, and currently, I am taking online

classes to complete my degree. My dream as a psychologist is to help women and children in my

country with emotional problems. This includes women and children who have been abused, and

children from single parent households.
