Julia was working in the mayor’s office when a man who was a facilitator commented to her about the project. She made contact with Sister Dimpna and signed up to have her own circle. She recruited students in the community and began her class with 16 members, but because of the time requirements and because some of them thought that they were too old, she now has only seven students.
“I am here helping the people that can’t read. We’re trying to help the people to learn. What they want to do is learn and be able to sign their names. What they don’t want to do any more is to put their thumbprint, but instead learn to sign their names. Everything is about helping these people.”—Julia Guzmán
