Daniel Alejandro Perez Cueva
Birth: Jan. 5, 1986, Peru
Death: Apr. 16, 2007
Montgomery County
Virginia, USA

Daniel was a victim of the Virginia Tech shootings. He was a student from Peru who was studying international relations.

Back home in Peru , Daniel Perez Cueva was a member of the national swimming federation and an accomplished student who loved to sing and dance.

But he came to the United States because he wanted a degree from an American university. He began his studies at the University of Miami and then transferred last year to Virginia Tech, where he majored in international relations.

"His goal was to finish his education at Virginia Tech because the university is very prestigious within the United States ," his mother, Betty Cueva, told the Peruvian radio station RPP Noticias. "My son drew up an objective and he did everything possible to reach it."

She said her son had been in the process of looking for jobs in Washington . He was one of 30 students killed in Norris Hall on Monday morning.

"This is very difficult for me, something I cannot apprehend," Mrs. Cueva told the radio station. "I want to think that he is alive. Together my son and I went through good and bad times in this country; my children are everything to me."
