Success Story: Htoo
We take pride in our goal-oriented and ambitious learners. This young woman is a true example of high self-motivation and resilience. The phrase that describes her best is “the sky’s the limit.” Htoo is a refugee from Myanmar. She had lived in a refugee camp in Thailand for eighteen years. She moved to Oshkosh, WI in 2013 when she was 20, all by herself, leaving her family behind. She came to the USA with big dreams: to start a new life, become successful, and help her family improve their lives. Today, she is a proud U.S. Citizen, stands firm on her feet working for a great local business. Her stable employment has helped Htoo improve her living conditions and enabled her to take better care of her large family.
