Margot was born in Arequipa, Peru. She graduated with a degree in Education from the University of Saint Augustine in 2005 and then went on to teach in both public and private schools in Arequipa. She joined Casa Chapi in 2013 as a house mother. She stepped into her natural role as teacher when Casa Chapi first became a school, and she was appointed Principal in 2015.
Working at Casa Chapi is a wonderful experience. I feel great satisfaction working with Quechua Benefit and serving children of the highlands in need of education and love. I’m happy to be part of a team that has grown and achieved great things in our three years together. I am thankful that these children have the opportunity to continue studying in Arequipa. Education is something that cannot be taken away.
