Genevieve came to the U.S. from Cote d’Ivoire, where she had never learned to read and write. Once here she quickly learned to speak English but had trouble learning to read it and to spell. She worked nights as a caregiver and raised her young daughters by day, and still Genevieve managed to find time to work with a LCFC tutor. One of her chief goals was to become a citizen, but she was afraid of the reading and writing portions of the test. Genevieve passed it on the first try!
