Faces of MAP: Granting opportunities to students in Illinois
from The DePaulia
Betzaira Herrera's mother only received a sixth-grade education in Mexico. In order to have a better life, she journeyed to the United States despite not speaking any English. A year later, Herrera's mother gave birth to her, and because of the lifestyle her mother had, she was raised with the idea that "education is the key to success." With that in mind, Herrera worked to go to college and eventually ended up at DePaul, where she is expected to graduate in the spring.
