Walkiria is a computer and survival skills teacher at Asilo Malambo orphanage in Panama. She was already working with the orphanage when Just Hope asked her to increase her responsibilities as a teacher in the survival skills program.
Walkiria grew up in the difficult neighborhood of Churillo, but was fortunate to get an education. She began teaching 35 years ago with the Girl Scouts, and since then, has taught leadership in Mexico, Ecuador, Costa Rica, and Colombia.
“I love teaching the Survival Skills program, because it values who each girl is,” she said. “I am constantly guiding the girls to become more responsible and mature so they can make it successfully once they are on their own.”
