“Being in a club helped me make many new friends".
Stephanie Gil Rivera knows what it is like to have to adjust to a new culture in a new city. She knows the challenges of having to learn to adapt to whole new lifestyle having moved from her native Puerto Rico to Nashua in 2007 at the age of 16. “It can be like a roller-coaster,” Gil Rivera said.
That’s why Gil Rivera is looking forward to being president of Nashua Community College’s World Languages Club. She said being introduced to people who have had similar experiences helped her adjust to her new life and she wants to be able to lend that same support to others. “Being in a club helped me make many new friends".
Gil Rivera is finishing the certificate program in Early Childhood Education and plans to work toward an Associate in Science in Early Childhood Education. Rivera hopes to one day own her own daycare center.
