The young Aiboniteña devised a card for Mother's Day. Know its history.
Despite being only 10 years old, Mia Isabella, knows that the coronavirus has disrupted the encounters between loved ones and those warm hugs that occur in family gatherings such as Mother's Day. With this in mind, the young Aiboniteña ventured to design some cards to remedy that shortage of hugs and, at the same time, honor the figure of our mothers.
Mia, who also participates in the SEEDS entrepreneurship program of the Friends for Puerto Rico organization, devised these cards as part of her 'Toques de Amor' business project.
"That is my personal company called Toques de Amor . They are handmade cards in lettering that is an art of drawing letters on cards," said Mia, who participates in the SEEDS program at her Montesorri school in Aibonito.
The card created by Mia reads as follows: "I am so lucky that my mother's heart belongs to me. Mothers are kisses that angels send us." The card will be accompanied by a bag of Café Amapola and will serve to raise funds for SEEDS entrepreneurship programs.
Given the pandemic that overwhelms the country, Mia said she is concerned about the number of people infected and those who may be at risk of dying from the coronavirus. However, he mentioned that this period has provided him with many lessons beyond those he learns in the school classroom.
"I have learned that apart from everything that is happening it is important to see your loved ones and it is important to give them a hug and a kiss from time to time and since we are locked up and we cannot go out so many times, it is difficult," said the girl who It will continue to develop its small card business.
The girl also said that as part of the SEEDS program they learn what it is to form a company, entrepreneurship, leadership and sales.
The SEEDS program, which is also based on entrepreneurship of agro-industries such as coffee, is located in Vieques, Toa Baja, Barranquitas and Guaynabo.
