My name is Beatriz.  Everyone tells me I have beautiful eyes. I came to live at Exodo Home when I was 6 years old.


Before coming to live in Exodo my little sister Anita and I, lived with my mother. My father died a long time ago. My mom was very sick at the time, and she would let us alone with our older brother for long hours while she went to the hospital. Very soon our brother began to touch us in ways that we did not like. We told our mother, but she didn’t do anything, so we told our aunt and she called the police.


mom comes to visit us when she is able, but she lives with a new boyfriend in a one room home and can’t take care of us.


I like living at ÉXODO because my uncles take really good care of us. 


I always get good grades at school and I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I want to have a degree and work to help my mom.


Beatriz is known for her sweet personality.  It is almost impossible to find her without a smile on her face!
