A Mom’s Determination Leads to Massive Achievements
Obstacles and struggles are often the stepping stones to success. We see the proof of that in a mom we know named Ivanize.
Ivanize came to Families First in Cabarrus County after hearing from others that “Families First is helping people.” She soon joined our Celebrating Families program and began attending our ESL classes.
With the help of her amazing ESL teachers, Ivanize began to learn English and was determined to eventually take the Citizenship test to become a U.S. citizen. Her daughters were in full support of their mom and would even help her study the questions for the test.
Ivanize worked towards overcoming the obstacles in her life every day and never gave up. Her massive achievements would soon lead to her coming on staff at Families First’s Cabarrus Bilingual Preschool – Lockhart as she started working towards becoming a preschool teacher.
Ivanize’s daughters have watched her come so far over the years. They are very proud of their mom, and so are we! Her determination and hard work has enabled her to overcome the adversities in her life and strive for new opportunities.
Congratulations on all of your amazing achievements and Feliz Día de las Madres, Ivanize!
