First Literacy Scholar: Diana

Diana R First Literacy Scholar Headshot

Diana is the embodiment of “perseverance pays off” and her children, family and friends can attest to that. At 17 years old, she withdrew from high school and faced a series of obstacles that challenged her but did not deter her from achieving her goal to work in the medical field. Over the years she’s worked hard and earned a certificate for Medical Assisting and Medical Administration and went back to school to get her high school equivalency diploma. Prioritizing the well-being of her children she found a job at MIT as a Medical Assistant. She is on the path to achieving her dream. Her goal is to enroll in college to begin work towards a career in nursing.
