- Additional information
Alejandro wishes to help the Panamanian youth and give them the opportunity to live up to their maximum potential. There are many threats that can stunt their growth as healthy, able, successful human beings such as peer pressure and physical abuse or a low self esteem. Alejandro has yet to define his project though he has decided to explore these issues and possible ways to address them.
