After living in Chile for most of her life, Angelica moved to America with her daughter.
With her other two children living in Chile and Ecuador, Angelica knew she would have to change her life. After several years of getting by, Angelica decided it was time to learn English. She found the Literacy Council of Southwestern Pennsylvania, and they soon placed her with a tutor.
Angelica has acquired enough English skills to work three days a week with adults with Downs Syndrome. Angelica started taking citizenship classes at the Literacy Council and obtained her United States citizenship. She now calls America her home. When asked about her experiences with the literacy council, she expressed, “I love ESL and have fantastic teachers.”
