My name is Yeidi Aceneth Ospina Giraldo; my favorite name is Yeidi. I was born on June 06, 1988 in the municipality of Milan – Caquetá, located on the banks of river Orteguaza; in southeastern of Florencia the capital of this department. I lived in a farm during my first years; I have lived in the city since my nine years. I like to dance, listen to music, read about interesting topics, and know new thing and places. My parents are Rodrigo Ospina Cardona and Maria Aceneth Giraldo Zuluaga, who have dedicated their

I studied in Educational Institution Los Andes since 2002 until 2004. During those years, I had two different English teachers a strict woman and a man. They taught me in a traditional way. I enjoyed those years with my classmates; one of the meaningful experiences was a trip to San

I started to study English in Colombo Americano but I could not continue because the studies in that institution are very expensive; I just studied there for two months. At the end of 2008, I took a decision about my life and my future; I decided to study English at Amazonia University. I came back to Florencia at the beginning of 2009 and began to study my career. My first semester was very easy because I was the knowledge required. During my second semester, I realized that I was pregnant. Thus, I studied while my baby grew inside me. At the fourth semester, I got my first experience as a teacher in a Santa Helena Primary School as a practicing. In 2011, I work as a teacher in an academy by some days. In seventh semester, I had to go observing to a classmate in order to learn through the observation how would be my own experience as a teacher in a public school. The practice as a teacher in a public school was very helpful for me; I know that I am shy to speak in public but if I have doubts about something, I look for information for clarifying my doubts. In this moment, I am undergraduate in the Amazonia University yet.
