“I’m a native Newarker. I attended Barringer High School but never finished. My husband was a veteran and I recently have become a widow so my kids encouraged me to come here. They all graduated from school so I wanted to do it and better myself. Back a few years ago I tried to get all this education through another school but I had kids and that was my priority. But even still I thought everyone should try to better themselves and look for knowledge no matter what your age is. So here I am with La Casa’s help, learning and trying to keep my mind fresh and ready for the opportunities ahead.”
