First Literacy Scholar: Marie

Marie moved to the United States from Haiti with her two daughters in 2016. She moved to the United States with the hope of providing her family with better opportunities. She knew coming to the United States would be difficult, but she underestimated the culture shock and language barrier. After completing English courses and a Bridge-to-College program in December 2020, Marie enrolled in two classes at Bunker Hill Community College. She now works at a hospital providing food service to patients and plans to work towards a degree in business with a focus on the healthcare industry.
