MEET THE TEAM

Kenia

Maestra

Maestra Kenia was born in a happy little town located on the east coast of the island of Cuba. From a young age her parents encouraged her to express herself through drawing, which taught her the value of psychographics in the psychological world of infants.

In 2003, she received her first degree, which authorized her to perform tests on children with special educational needs. Being a member of a multidisciplinary team, she continued her humanistic studies and graduated as a clinical psychologist in 2011. Since then, she has worked with vulnerable groups, such as dysfunctional families and children with cognitive and affective disorders.

At the end of 2016, motivated to be a better support for her elderly father, she decided to travel to the United States and to settle in the legendary city of Philadelphia. In her free time, Kenia enjoys literature, photography, and spending time outside in the fresh air. She believes in the improvement of the human being, and believes that the first impressions of a child are key in the development of his personality and social integration.

Kenia is grateful to God for allowing her to work for and with children, and for allowing her to be part of the Amigos team.
