First Literacy Scholar: Doris

Doris is from the Central American country of Guatemala. She arrived in the United States when she was just 15 years old. She didn’t speak any English, but with the help of Wellspring and her extreme determination, Doris was able to complete high school in 4 years. Doris hopes to continue her academic journey by being the first in her family to attend college. Her dream is to one day become a police officer and continue to inspire those around her to push themselves and achieve their goals.
