Varman’s Story

Literacy Council of Northern Virginia Uncategorized

It is never easy to move to a new country and start a new life in a language you don’t know. When Varman made the decision to leave everything behind and settle down in the US, she has gone through a lot of hardships. In simple English, Varman expresses her thankfulness towards everyone that has helped her in her new home.

“When my family and I traveled to the USA we were very sad and lost because we left everything behind. When we met the American people here we were very welcomed and helped. We thank the USA and the American people. And I also thank my teachers.”

By sharing Varman’s essay, we would also like to thank you for all the support we have received during and beyond this Thanksgiving. Your support has helped our students achieve their goals and settle down in their new home. If you didn’t get a chance to donate on Giving Tuesday, you can always support us by visiting our volunteering or make a donation pages.
