Congratulations to Student C. on receiving her citizenship in February! Her tutor says:
She is filled with pride at her accomplishment, as she should be!
When I met her 4 years ago, she was quite shy and timid about practicing her English and wondered about her overall place in the United States, but she soldiered on. Today, C. is an articulate, confident young woman, she is a certified nursing assistant, she has a beautiful home and family, and for me, she has become a life long friend. I have learned so much from her, about her home country of Rwanda, about the struggles one faces when immigrating to a place very different from the one you grew up in, and about personal courage, grace, and persistence. Our country is a better place because C. is here! I’m proud to have been a part of her journey.
