After working with her for five years, Viviana Andazola is leaving for Yale University. I could write for hours on her experiences and successes, but I’m not at all responsible for that. Viviana’s success comes from her own tenacious heart.

We must give every child a place to sit and a teacher to learn from. Poverty must not be a bar to learning, and learning must offer an escape from poverty.

– President Lyndon B. Johnson

As of late, Viviana’s latest success was the publication of her college application letter, or personal statement, in the New York Times.
