My name is Veronica. I am married and have one daughter. Four years ago, we left Mexico with a broken heart – no family, no friends, and no jobs in Arkansas. We lost our way of life, but everything has its rewards. In the beginning, it was very difficult, but we progressed step by step.
A year and half ago, I found Ozark Literacy Council. OLC has very professional people; they always work very hard and give a lot for us. Our school is amazing because we have people from different countries and cultures. We are one big family because we are learning English and a new culture.
My daughter, Samantha, is ten years old. She is very active in her school, and she loves her Gifted and Talented classes. She has very good grades, and her English has improved a lot compared to how much she knew four years ago. Samantha is the reason why we are here struggling. We are seeking a better education for her and us. My goal now is to go to the University for an MBA. I feel more confident thanks to OLC.
