Yamil Apaza Hullpa

As a young boy, Yamil’s father, a musician, taught him to play musical instruments. This inspired him to study Creative Music Expression at the Warisata Normal School. Yamil’s music teacher in school also encouraged him in this area.

Yamil has one brother and two sisters; he is the eldest son. One of his sisters traveled to Cuba to study, but did not finish the program. His father works as a musician but has no source of steady income, and his mother is a merchant. Jamil, his sister, and grandmother are members of Holiness Friends church of Achacachi.

In his spare time, Yamil works making bricks to cover some of his expenses. He is an active person, likes to leave memories forever with each activity he does, and also likes to collaborate with teachers.

Yamil has had a BQEF scholarship since July 2010. To find out how you or your meeting can support Yamil's studies, please visit our Scholarships and Sponsorships page.
