Mother Teresa of Calcuta

Mother Teresa was born the 26 of August of 1910 in Skopje, was albanian of born and her original name was Agnes Gonhxa Bojaxhiu. In 1948 the Mother Teresa acquired the hindu citizentship. When she was 18 years old, she entered in the order of "las Hermanas de Nuestra Señora de Loreto"in Irland. She received her religious formation in Dublin, Irland and in Dardjiling, India.
In 1931, she took the name of Teresa in honor to a french nun that was declareted in 1937 she ttok the religous votes and teach for 20 years in the "Santa Maria" shcool in Calcuta, India and in 1946 received other called of god to the most poor persons. In 1948, the Pope Pio conceded her permission to leaveof independient nun and started to share her life with the poors.
She founded a congregation called the Misioners of the Charity. Her inicial work was to teach to read to the poor boys. In 1950 started to help lepers, and in 1965 there were lots of centers to help the perons that needed help.

She win the Nobel of the peace in 1979. She dead in September of 1997.

My personal opinion is that Agnes was an extraordinary person with hard arguments, and that the poors need the same opportunities than the rest of the persons.
