First Literacy Scholar: Khadija

From Casablanca, Morocco, Khadija came to the United States in 2016 looking for better opportunities. She was a star student throughout all her studies in her home country, but had to start all over when she came to the United States. Shortly after she came to the U.S. she entered into an abusive marriage that stopped her from pursuing many of her goals, including finishing school. After some time, she made the choice to leave the abusive environment and go back to school. This fall Khadija will attend Bunker Hill Community College. She hopes to use her education to inspire others going through similar hardships.
