“I came to this country with my family. We lived in New York. I got married before I got my high school diploma. My husband and I moved to Boston where I tried to enroll in a school to finish high school. I could not find the right program so I decided to look for a job. I was pregnant and I could not continue working because I didn’t want to lose my baby. After she was born, I heard about Mujeres Unidas’ program. This program provided me the educational services I was looking for. I had at MUA the opportunity to enroll in the English program as well as becoming a part of other programs where I could develop computer skills. Also, through this organization I got information about college programs in the community. Today, I am in the Infant Psychology Program at Bunker Hill Community College. My goal for the future is to be a bilingual psychologist.
