Norma Velasco
Student since March 2018

Norma applied with us on the recommendation of a classmate. She entered with the goal of becoming more proficient in English and has made tremendous progress in a very short time. Norma recently received her permanent residency and is currently attending class to attain her citizenship. She is also preparing to take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), which will allow her to enroll in college.
