nursing by taking online classes She also works full time as a paraprofessional at Red River High SchoolShe’s very grateful for her education and “really lucky” to be here she said If she still lived in Nepal she could never have fulfilled her dream of becoming a nurse because it would be too costly she said“Looking back I feel like I learned so much” she said “I was so quiet and I didn’t even

killed“We have a strong passion for the kids to be successful and such motivation for them to do well” said Winship Principal Travis ThorvilsonBut support for these students requires more than
