Victor is in his 3rd of 5 years, studying architecture in the UMSA. “I like to make things...More than anything I like to draw. I want to create and use spaces here better, not only for those who have money, but [for] those without it too. I also want to learn more about that which is The Bible. I’ve always liked drawing and creating...We are made in the image of God and He was a creator. My grandparents were Friends, we all grew up Christian." Victor wants to try to change his country; to leave the corruption behind. "We don’t know how to use our resources. The government doesn’t use what it has. We need to look for God. People always look for houses, a place to live and they live there locked in. We need to open up the way we live to God.
