My story is short, simple and sweet. I am from a small rural town called El Bosque, located in the province of Monte Plata, in Dominican Republic. Back in 1995, a peace corp volunteer came to my town and through him I was able to go obtain a scholarship and come to the United States, where I studied English for over a year at the American Language Institute, located at the University of Toledo, in Toledo Ohio.
I can back to the country in 1997 and since then, have been working for American Companies that have operation centers in the country. Throughout the years, my knowledge of the language has improved significantly, has helped secure stable jobs and helped get my bachelor degree.
Now, as a bilingual and college-educated, I want to go back to my town and found an English-as-a second language school.
I don´t have the resources to make it happen but I am hoping that, with the help of kind-hearted people, I can make it happen.
God bless you all.
