Alumni of the Month
"After I graduated the Facing History School I started college right away, I went to LaGuardia Community College to achieve my associates in Liberal Arts and where after I few months I started working as a Spanish tutor. I got my Associates with honors the Fall of 2011 and the Spring of 2012 I started my journey at Hunter College to get my Bachelors in Romance Languages: French and Italian, that same year I volunteered at the Facing History School to work with ESL students. I am currently studying in Viterbo a small city in Italy, 45mins away from Rome, and where I have the honor to live in the historical center of the city surrounded by its medieval walls. Here in Viterbo I’m volunteering at a high school as a teacher assistant in the Spanish classes and soon I will start doing the same at the “Università della Tuscia”. Viterbo has changed my life in so many ways, everyday I fall in love with this city over and over again, the people, the pleasure of learning a new culture and language, are just some of the things that make me appreciate every single minute of this experience. I’ll be eternally grateful for this amazing experience, I’ve traveled to magical places that have only reassured all the things that I’m passionate about and give me the certainty that everything in life is achievable we just have to work for it regardless of all the obstacles that life brings to our lives, because: 'A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor'."
