Since she was nine, Kathering has been working in restaurants to support her family financially. Her mother could not work anymore due to health reasons and Kathering, together with her younger sister and brother, needs to help to sustain the family. However, Kathering is determined to get a university degree to ensure a better future for all of them.
Kathering has always enjoyed studying and attending school, and she has even won a national prize in Mathematics. She loves being outside as well as hands-on work with animals, and her career as a zoologist will make it possible for here to work on the countryside with livestock. Once a week, Kathering volunteers at the social project "Casita del Árbol" in Tipitapa, where she helps with the library service and plays and learns with the kids.
