"'I can't' is not in my vocabulary." - Martha

Martha is our student spotlight for this month! Originally from Mexico, Martha moved here in search of a better future for her and her two daughters. She placed her education on hold until her girls started school, but promised herself she would return to finish. She is currently enrolled in GED and ABE classes at Literacy Source. Martha rarely misses class and is always eager to learn. She has seen improvements in her writing and math and is feeling more confident in her education. In the near future, she hopes to get her GED.

As a mother, Martha stresses the value of education to her children.  She tells them that there is no limit to what they can achieve if they have a positive mindset. During her free time, Martha enjoys making craft projects out of recycled materials with her daughters. She is an incredible role model for her girls and others around her. Congrats Martha, keep up the great work!
