Juan Emilio García Estrada is in his 6th semester of Political Sciences at the Universidad de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico. During the past 6 years he has participated in social activities within several communities in the State of Nuevo León. He is founder and director of an association called "Esperanza del Futuro", a project that for more than two years has worked in giving a better quality of life to the families in the region of Santa Catarina Nuevo León. His outstanding leadership skills and his constant drive to help others have led him to engage other young people in committing themselves to the service of those in need.
In the past six years I have learned about the poverty situation in which many families live and, through this project, I have been able to work with them in order to bring a better quality of life to the community with the help of other young people. I consider that this project has had a transcendent impact in the life of several communities where, little by little, the quality of life of many people has been transformed. Therefore I think it is very important letting others know about the project so that it can be valued and be of inspiration to many other young people.
