Floria learns farming and agricultural techniques
Floria suffers from a handicap that makes it very hard to learn traditionally, but now she is hoping for a better future in farming.
Floria is a 16-year-old girl and although she has had many struggles, she shares her hopes and dreams. Floria’s life has been a struggle as she was born with intellectual disabilities. Since she was a child till the age of 15, Floria has been unable to move past first year of primary school. She has issues with remember things and often struggles with basic health needs taking baths or helping around the house unless her family shows her how to do the task each time.
Her mother began to notice when Floria was 6 years old that she often struggled with basic choirs around the house and often would not do them. Later the family was informed by the school that Floria’s struggle with grasping topics in first grade. After becoming recipients to the Zara Mira allocation funds, they were able to pay for hospital visits where she was diagnosed with an intellectual disability and the family was advised that Floria needed to be placed in a specialized school that could better take care of her needs.
Floria faced a lot of discrimination, especially from her peers that are often mean to her for being unable to pass the first year in primary school. They would often tease and bully her for her intellectual disabilities. Unfortunately, her sisters also do the same and it affects her emotionally.
Fortunately, she has found a path better suited for her and she hopes to grow in the field of agriculture. She is working an association that cultivates vegetables and she has learned how to farm and often helps. She hopes to one day become an Agriculturalist and work closely with farmers to help them cultivate their fields.
