FirstLiteracy-scholar-2020-2021-Yane

Yane faced many challenges when she arrived in the United States in 2019. She needed to balance a full-time job, care for her young son, and learning English. In time she was able to get help from the Asian American Civic Association, which allowed her to find work, childcare, and online college courses. Yane is currently studying Early Childhood Education at Bunker Hill Community College so she can continue progress toward her goal of being a teacher. She completed an assistantship in the YMCA childcare program and will soon receive her teacher certificate, despite interruptions caused by the pandemic. She is grateful for all those who have helped her through these difficult times.
