““I came to GFS 9 years ago when my daughter was a baby to attend the NuParent program and ESL. When I first came, I was so scared and nervous because I was really new in this country. I started from the bottom. Then I went to high school. And now I’m going to college. Learning English was very important to me. I want to help people like GFS helped me. I also want to be an example for my daughter. I am very proud of myself.” –
