Kenia and Felipe de Jesús are both La Biblioteca’s scholarship holders with Scholarship Plus and Extra. Last Friday, March 19, they both presented their projects. Kenya was first with her presentation of the project called “Support and regularization sessions for elementary school children.” Kenia Estephania Ramírez Villafranco is currently in her eighth semester of study in a career of pedagogy at the Universidad Patria campus of San Miguel de Allende. As part of her studies to become a teacher, she has dedicated herself to the innovation of new learning strategies for students. In addition, she promotes the importance of values within the school and family environment.
Following this, Felipe, spoke to us about “Sacred Art in San Miguel de Allende: Tourism, History, Society and Culture”. Felipe de Jesús Aceves Delgado, is in his eighth semester of a Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism Management and Development, at the Technological University of San Miguel de Allende. Along with his studies, Felipe has a certification as a Tour Guide specializing in the “Chichimeca Route,” which he received from the Federal Secretary of Tourism. He also holds a diploma in Religious Art from the State Institute of Culture of the State of Guanajuato. In spite of his young age, he is 21, he has already had two years of experience in the tourism field. He enjoys knowing and making known the history of San Miguel de Allende and its society, because he claims that San Miguel de Allende is an incredibly unique city because of its history, culture, and its people. But above all else, what makes it most special is all the art here which is the main reason to feel pride in the city as Sanmiguelenses and, of course, as Mexicans.
