Keila Maria Lacayo Condega
Date of Birth: February 27, 1993

My name is Keila Maria Lacayo Condega.  I came to CICRIN when I was six years old. I graduated high school in 2012 at the age of 18. The following year I moved to Managua, Nicaragua to start a new stage in my life. I am currently in my fourth year of college, studying Graphic design at Politechnic Univeristy of Nicaragua (UPOLI). Next year, Lord willing, I will be working on my dissertation and graduating with a graphic design degree.

For a while I was a leader of the dance ministry at my church. Nowadays, I help my church more with graphics. After I graduate college, I want to find a job and rent an apartment. Lord willing, I would like to continue school and go on to study marketing. As always, I would like to continue serving God and maintain a good relationship with CICRIN. Thanks to God and to CICRIN, I am close to fulfilling one of my goals.

One of my memories from CICRIN is my first Christmas there. I remember feeling loved by my friends and family, and most important, the presents!
