“SEADC helps me build my confidence to believe in myself.” —Jimmy, 19 years old
Jimmy came to the U.S. from Vietnam at the age of 10 through family reunification. His parents struggled to find stable housing and the family bounced from apartment to apartment for three years. Jimmy had difficulty learning English and fitting in at school. Fortunately, Jimmy’s family was introduced to SEADC. Once connected, he benefited from much-needed daily homework support and enrichment activities, while his parents received housing and other assistance. Jimmy is the first in his family to graduate from high school in America. Today, Jimmy is also the first in his family to attend a four year university.
Because of SEADC’s supportive enrichment program, Jimmy aspires to finish college and pursue a career in business administration.
