When we met Rosa she was helping her mother sell cakes and other refreshments they made. She enjoyed the work, but this job wasn’t leading her towards the big dreams she has for her future. Although Rosa is young, she has a lot of responsibility to support her son. Her goal is to get her high school diploma and then go on to become a preschool teacher.

FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MEMORY
“When we were young my dad would let us play late at night. He would wake us up at 3am and say ‘When you see the sun you need to be back at the house.'”

Dear Rosa,
I bought a hat one year ago and took it with me while travelling over one year. I can say it's a really quality product! Kept me warm during all the treks we went on. I also went to Peru and did several treks in the mountains (Colca Canyon, Santa Cruz, Ausangate, Huayhuash). Peru is a wonderfull country. Thank you very much for keeping me warm with this beautiful knitted hat! I also learned spanish in Peru. Muchas gracias y te deseo buena suerta en su vida !

Gracias

I just purchased a shirt "lets End it" I have not tried it on, yet but feels so soft and we are to wear it especially on 2/7/19 to let other's know we are fighting against Slavery all over the World! I appreciate your work as I use to work sewing clothes, too. I am glad your going to school and I feel you will make a wonderful teacher. I send Blessings to your son.

Thank you so much for the beautiful headband/ear warmer. The color, the fabric, and the styler are all perfect. It stays on my head so well and keeps my ears very warm. It's so nice to know that two beautiful hands took the time to make this piece. I will cherish it. Good luck with your cosmetology studies and thanks for being a good mom to your son. I am praying for you Rosa.

Aloha Rosa, my scarf is beautiful. And so very soft. You are a talented crocheter I could never make anything this goureous. I live in Hawaii on the Island of Maui. It doesn't get very cold here. But I wear it at work where my office is air condition and love the cozy scarf instead of a sweater. I got many compliments on your piece of work. The scarf was a sweet gift from my boyfriend who found it at a ski shop in Montana and was intrigued with the Krochet kids philosophy. Your story is amazing and I wish you best of luck in cosmetology school . Mahalo, Anna
