The life of Eva Maria Duarte Peron compared to the life of Ernesto Guevara Lynch de La Serna.
Evita Peron, born Eva Maria Duarte, in contrast to the heights to which she rose, came from very humble beginnings. Eva was born in 1919 in Los Toldos, Argentina to Juana Ibarguren. Eva's father, Juan Duarte had a fifteen year long affair with Juana, although he was already married. The couple was stable though Eva and her four siblings, Blanca, Elisa, Juan, and Erminda were all legally acknowledged by their father. Even though the children were acknowledged, when the mother took them to their father's funeral, in 1920, they were not allowed to enter. Eva's family lived in very poor economic circumstances and in order to survive, her mother and sisters hired themselves out has cooks to wealthy families. In this life for struggling for money, Eva got her first glimpse of the differences between the rich and poor in Argentina and the ideal of social inequality would be one she would carry through to the rest of her life. Eva attended school in the town of Junin, where she and her family ended up settling down. Eva had very difficult early years, she wasn't a very promising student, receiving average grades, and remembered by most of her classmates as awkward looking. Realizing that she didn't have much of an academic future, Eva became interested in acting. When she got a small part in the school play, Arriba Estudiantes'. Eva made up her mind that she would one day become a famous actress.
