“I arrived in the United States in May of 2013, but my life in America began the day I met Tina at the Literacy Council,” said WCLC learner Rameez, during a panel discussion at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. After arriving to the U.S. from Pakistan on religious asylum, Rameez received individual tutoring, and enrolled in English as a Second Language classes and the Road to Work (employment skills classes) program. He obtained his driver’s license, steady employment, and enrolled in technical college – all in the span of 7 months.
