First Literacy Scholar: Stephan

Stephan, a native of Haiti, knew he wanted to be a nurse when he was six years old. Later in North Miami Beach High, he volunteered for health service projects and worked for Care.com until circumstances threw him off track, and he dropped out of school. After his recent move to Massachusetts, he discovered the Adult Learning Center at North Shore Community College and passed his High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) in a record three months while working full time. Stephan is now enrolled in the nursing program at North Shore Community College.
