Dunia is originally from El Progreso, Honduras. She lost her parents at a young age and was sent to the municipal girl’s orphanage where she met Ana Luisa Ahern and Justin Eldridge-Otero who were volunteers there before they were founders of Organization for Youth Empowerment (OYE). In 2005, Dunia became one of the organization’s first five beneficiaries of the scholarship program which is how she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. In 2008 she became a permanent facilitator in OYE’s Skill and Leadership Development program where she provided training on self-esteem, leadership and gave English classes. Since the end of 2012 Dunia has been OYE’s Programs Coordinator.
Dunia’s favorite pastimes are singing, dancing and getting to know her country. She also enjoys movies and the company of her brother, sister and nieces.
