Milka was born in Panama. When she was 10 years old she moved with her parents to live in Colombia, where she finished school and university, graduating with a major in pre-school education. Milka then traveled to Spain to continue her studies in special education. She lived in Madrid for a long time, and eventually became a Spanish citizen. While in Spain, Milka reconnected with an old boyfriend via e-mail, they decided to marry and make a life together in the U.S. She moved to Fort Worth in 2018.
Milka originally came to the University Baptist Church to learn English, and while in the class she noticed that some of her fellow students brought their children, who would disappear and then return at the end of the class. Milka learned that these children actually went to the daycare onsite while their parents studied English.
Milka expressed interest in seeing the setup of the daycare, and was given a tour. Knowing her educational background and interest in childcare, her English instructor introduced her to the director of the program. Soon after, Milka began to volunteer at the ELC.Milka is very grateful for the opportunity to know the parents and all the wonderful people she has met who share her love of working with children.
Milka likes: dancing, singing, telling stories, and doing theater. She also like to read books on personal growth, leadership, and finance.
Milka often attends services at University Baptist Church. She feels very blessed to be a part of this loving community, and is very grateful for her co-workers and for all the wonderful people she has met at UBC.
