Tesfalem immigrated to Seattle from Eritrea just five months ago, and has been taking classes at Literacy Source since May. He is currently enrolled in Conversation Class and Ready to Work, which means he attends classes four days a week. His attendance has been very consistent, and he's working hard to improve his English and get a job. His teacher Taiko says, "Tesfalem is a great student, has a great sense of humor, and is always helping his classmates."
In Eritrea, he used to drive large trucks, and also had experience with welding. Now, he's open to getting any work that is available. He likes to visit with his cousin who is also in Seattle and reminisce about life in Eritrea.
Keep up the good work, Tesfalem- we are happy to have you at Literacy Source!
