Nicaragua is surrounded by its beautiful nature including its incredible history. The name ‘Nicaragua’ came from a chief named Nicarao. He was chief to a digenous tribe that settled in Lake Nicaragua around late 1400’s and early 1500’s. In 1524 Hernandez de Cordoda was the first Spanish settler to live in the region of Granada on Lake Nicaragua and Leon Managua. Nicaragua gained its independents from Spain in 1821, making the country part of the Mexican Empire and becoming a member of independent Central American. Nicaragua became an independent republic.
Nicaragua is very unique in many different ways! It’s located near the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Honduras and Costa Rica border this country. “Nicaragua’s land of beaches is lapped by sparkling seawater, deep forests, long winding rivers, colonial cities, ancient sites thousands of years old, and a huge freshwater lake- the only lake in the world with sharks in it” (Shields 9). This country includes beautiful landscapes, mild climate, republic form of government, low finances, distinctive culture, and many interesting facts.
Nicaragua has been through a lot as a country throughout its history. By war and political corruption. Yet, during the beginning of its history around the 15th century much was not going on during that period. Much of its history occurred during the 19th century. In “1523 the Spanish conquered Nicaragua and divided the land into large estates, and forced the native people were forced to work.” (Lambert). The Spanish took most of the control of Central America up in until the late 18th century. Where during “1821 part of Central America broke away from Spanish rule and formed the United Central Provinces” (Lambert). As a result of breaking away from Spanish rule, Nicaragua became an independent country in 1838. “In 1893 a man named Jose Santos Zelaya made himself dictator of Nicaragua. In 1909 there was a rebellion and
The country of Nicaragua, located in the center of Central America, is one the poorest nations in Latin America. Nicaragua’s citizens are primarily mestizo who account for almost 70% of the population. With a population of nearly six million, 58.8% of Nicaraguans live in urban areas, with nearly 2% of citizens migrating from rural areas to the cities in search of jobs and better welfare. However, internal migration to rural areas also exist seasonally for agricultural labor. Due to the current economic standing of the nation, Nicaragua’s current population growth rests at 1%, while losing 3 out of 1,000 citizens due to emigration. While the nation has seen small growth in its GDP at a 4.5% growth rate, many Nicaraguans continue to migrate out of the nation. In 2009, is was estimated that 42.5% of Nicaraguans lived below the poverty line, with the lowest 10% of citizens sharing 1.4% in household income. In 2008, it was recorded that underemployment rate was at 46.5% (CIA Factbook). When looking at the statistics and numbers for this nation, it is easy to understand the reasoning for many Nicaraguans emigrating out of their country.

After the Nicaraguan revolution, in the early 1980’s and prior to taking office as the first female president in the history of Nicaragua, my great-grandmother began the sunday tradition at her home. Her four children and their immediate families got together to have dinner once a week. Because I lived in her house, I never missed one sunday. She did this in order to maintain the family together despite the political differences of her children. I thought of it as her being the roof holding four pillars steady. As a seven year old, I could feel the tension building up from heated conversations. I could be at one corner of the house and would listen how two argued about what the other two were doing wrong, and I had no idea what it was about.
Having been born and raised in Nicaragua has given me a good understanding of how the government works, but especially how Daniel Ortega has done everything possible to stay in power after many years. Personally, I’ve never been a person who loves politics, but in this case I decided to write about the current situation between Nicaragua and the US. Nicaragua has been facing for far too long corruption among government officials, making our government to become a dictatorship instead of a democracy. Our president tends to have a dishonest agenda, which he uses to his own advantage. A lot of people who knows me might think that I already had a stance on this topic before writing about it, for the simple fact of being Nicaraguan, but to your
In 1979, towards the completion of the Cold War era, Nicaragua´s Sandinista movement appeared on the world platform claiming to signify a new form of socialism that would benefit the oppressed men and women of Nicaragua (Montoya). The topic of interest for my project is examining how the Nicaraguan revolution impacted the roles of women during the revolution and how it has affected the cultural as well as societal norms for women today. It’s imperative to examine the context as to why these women joined the revolution in the first place; what were their legal rights, did they have access to education and health care, and what was their participation in the workforce. Since the main objective of the Nicaraguan Revolution (FSLN) was to overthrow
After traveling to Nicaragua one summer, a friend and I founded a ministry called SoleFood. SoleFood is a ministry whose goal is to collect shoes for underprivileged children in Nicaragua. My friend Sophie and I spent a week in a rural village in Nicaragua and we were tired of seeing children running around with muddy and scraped feet. While I was in Nicaragua, I served on a medical mission team where we cared for their physical and spiritual needs. When it came time to leave, I did not want to stop serving them. That’s when we thought of SoleFood and how we could carry our ministry back to America. In order to support our newly founded non-profit, we had no choice but to ask friends and family for donations. The thought of asking someone for money makes the hairs on my arms stand up. It makes me feel uncomfortable and awkward. We asked for help by writing letters and informing the recipient of our intentions , and how we would be using their donations. As I wrote these letters I felt as if I were
Have you ever wanted something but you can't get it and when you do you feel so happy and you thanks the person who boughted for you.i feel so happy because when i was in nicaragua in central america i was just a little kid and i was already stealing, drinking alcohol, smoking,and i and my friends made like a little group and we said we was going to protect each other so we used to carry knives,pistols,all kind of weapons,but i did not feel that protected because there were sometimes where i almost got killed,but now i feel protected because the gift god gave america and america gave to me and my generation was a gift that i will never forget and that gift is the real protection,the protection that always takes care of you for example the policemen,firefighters,soldiers,all
