Our Stories: Rosa, Scholar (2020)

Rosa will attend Montgomery College and hopes to become a secondary education teacher. She came to the United States by herself four years ago. Her mother passed away when she was an infant, and she does not have contact with her father. She was raised by her grandmother and initially lived with an aunt when she moved here. She initially slept on the floor of her aunt’s apartment and had to work through high school to support herself, but she still made the academic honor roll every quarter. She currently works three jobs to support herself and loves to write in spare time.
