My name is Samantha Baugh and I was born on December 21, 2004, I am 17 years old. Due to the fact that I grew up in the city, I have been raised disconnected from my indigenous origins. I am very sorry that my cultural connection to Ecuador is very limited, however, the project 'Beyond Lagartococha' seems to me a great opportunity to appreciate a world from which I am completely alien and show my respect for it. My greatest wish is to be able to bring happiness to the community and offer feasible long-term help. The fact that I can take part in such an admirable project makes me happy, especially as I have always been in awe of the actions taken by previous generations of my school.
