Hi! My name is Daisy Melanie Villalva. I'm a rising junior at Binghamton University. I'm majoring in Sociology with a minor in Immigration Studies. My experience with children goes far back starting at the age of 15 working in camps and volunteering during after school clubs. Aside from my experience with children of all ages in my community. I first experienced teaching a year ago in Honduras teaching English to 9th graders. That was my first experience being in the front of the class, lesson planning, and learning new communication skills. Education is something I value a lot and the importance of it, but not everyone is able to have a “good education” experience either abroad or even locally. Growing up in a low-income household, attending low funded schools I have seen first hand how many students attending these schools miss out on some of the best opportunities. They are not exceeding at high rates which aren't based on knowledge but the lack of resources and support they receive. As a sociology major learning about how society functions and those in it, education is an important factor and it starts with supporting those who are the next generation.
