Our heroes’ stories
‘ I was an English teacher in Bulgaria. It took me 2 years to start teaching again in the United States! Although I spoke the language, I didn’t know how to write my resume or interview for a job. I had to complete applications and take many exams, but my cousin mentored and tutored me, so I could teach again. Now I want to tutor and mentor other immigrants like me because I understand their challenges.’
“I had a business in my country and was known and respected in my town. When I came to the US, I felt powerless because I didn’t know many people. I was scared that I couldn’t get a driver’s license because I didn’t speak English. I am so grateful that I found a mentor who was helping me pass the test and find the resources I needed to support my family. “
‘ I am a refugee from Nepal. I didn’t speak English well, but I wanted to receive my high school diploma and become a nurse. My English teacher tutored me individually and helped me get my credits and pass my high school exam. Now, I am a nurse and have a good life in the United States.’
