Franklyn and Esler “Yonathan Orellana Mejia used to live in a small town in the mountains of Honduras, a town with lots of businesses. They moved to the United States “to start a new life,” said Yonathan.

The brothers have only been in the country since November so they have not had a lot of time to miss their hometown. They’ve been too busy preparing for their new lives. Yonathan said that the best part of attending Armijo was the chance to be learning English.
