SUCCESS STORY

“Brookview helped me learn to communicate in English, recognized and nurtured my love of art. At first, I didn’t know how to speak English, and it was a big obstacle at school and in the community, so I needed to attend bilingual classes for two years. Now I go to regular classes; I have learned how to communicate in English very well. I joined the Teen Visionaries where I learned about domestic violence and tried photography for the first time. I also attended sculpture classes on Saturday mornings.” –Tania
