Our Stories: Estafani, Scholar (2018)

Estefani is an aspiring elementary school teacher from El Salvador whose father passed away shortly after migrating to the U.S. and who herself arrived in Maryland at age 14. She maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout high school and served as president of a local immigrant youth group — tutoring more recent immigrants in algebra and ESOL— all while working nights as a cashier at Taco Bell. The daughter of a house cleaner, she will study education at Montgomery College as the 2018 Google-Elevated Unicycle Book Club Scholar.
