First Literacy Scholar: Jennifer

Jennifer is the first Colombian-American in her family, and the first to pursue a college education. In high school she was a talented violinist but dropped out in her senior year. Years later, the birth of her twin daughters motivated her to return to school, so she enrolled at the Joan Brack Adult Learning Center for HiSET preparation. Jennifer has since completed her freshman year at Quinsigamond Community College and is about to start her second year with courses toward a biology degree, and dreams of a career in genetics.
