I moved to the U.S. from Peru with my three children. I worked around the clock, taking care of my family, working, going to nursing school, and learning English at NOCE. My hard work paid off – I became fluent in English and a Certified Nursing Assistant. Now, I’m studying to become a pharmacist! Elsa Osgood
