LLF Program: Story Hour
Involved in LLF: Fall 2010
In South Florida: 1973, came from Cuba via Spain when I was 5 years old. Didn’t speak a word of English. It was hard for me to read at first with the language, but I had great teachers and they were patient with me.
Hobbies: Volunteering with LLF, Reading, Meditating, Camping, going to the beach
Favorite Activity: Spending time with my family & grandson 🙂
Favorite LLF Moment: When the children have taken the role of the volunteer reader and they are the ones to tell the story to us. They do such a good job of reading and showing the pictures in the book and a few have gone as far as asking questions about the story. It is very rewarding to see the impact that we make in these children’s lives.

Favorite LLF Moment: When playing Uno with a group of children, one child said “I wish everyone could win.” I realized how their life experiences have exposed them to the beauty of the present moment and the important of friendship and happiness. It would be so great if more people felt this way.
