Yohaxa Piedad Guerrero Garcia and her family departed from their lively hometown of El Banco Magdalena in Colombia in 2018 to start a new life in Canada. Although she has successfully acclimatized to her new surroundings, she longs for the cherished memories of her hometown, particularly the annual holiday tradition of lighting candles on the streets, and the companionship of her sister, whom she had to leave behind.
