First Literacy Scholar: Jocelyne

Jocelyne left her family and small village in Haiti at 13 and found work in the US as a babysitter. She learned English and eventually earned her high school diploma at Jewish Vocational Services while working and raising her own children. In 1994, Jocelyne became a Certified Nursing Assistant and now works at Boston Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital. This fall, Jocelyne will begin her second year of courses at Roxbury Community College toward her dream of becoming a registered nurse.
