“When I Look in the Mirror I See a Radiant, Brave, Warrior Woman”

Guatemala Reported by Convoy of Hope

“You have to do it for your son,” Arcelid’s mom told her. 

Before becoming a mom, Arcelid dreamed of becoming a hairstylist. But without resources, support, and confidence, that dream felt impossible to reach. 

“When I look in the mirror I see a radiant, brave, warrior woman. I dream of a bigger business to be able to provide support to many women who need it.”
— Arcelid, Guatemala

Then Arcelid had a baby to care for. Her mom sent her information to CADA, Convoy of Hope’s Centre for Outreach, Development, and Friendship in Guatemala. There, Arcelid found hope. Resiliency. She saw her dreams fulfilled. And she’s providing for her son.
