Evett moved from Jamaica to the U.S. in 2015 to join her eldest daughter and grandson.
When she stepped through the airport doors in Washington, D.C., she thought, “This is it. My life can finally change.” At 15 Evett had to leave school to support her first daughter. Forty-one years later, at age 55, she enrolled in the GED program at the Carlos Rosario School. She was determined to earn her high school diploma and in 2018 she did it. “I’m very proud of myself. I didn’t know that after 40 years out of school I would be able to do it. But I did it. My kids are proud of me and I’m proud that I made them proud.”
All of the students at Carlos Rosario School have grown from learning English. The school empowers us to understand the language and culture. It also teaches us about civil rights, to be better citizens, to become someone in this land.
