Alba, NC


Alba is a hard-working single mother who earned her degree in Spanish. She says, “After years of dead end jobs, I decided to go back to school because my kids were older. Since then I’ve been going to school full time, working part time and sacrificing a lot in order to accomplish my goal of obtaining a college education.

I hope to continue setting a good example for my children and teaching them that although things will get hard, a good education will keep you going.”
