I have been teaching an English
class because knowing English
provides opportunities for better jobs.
In the beginning, some of my
students struggled to believe that
they could learn or that it would be
worth it. “Maybe you will be wasting
your time,” one said, “what if we
can’t learn?” Then one woman (the
one wearing cream and orange in
the photo) made a decision that she
could learn and took it upon herself
to encourage and challenge the
others. Because of her the class
completely changed. All of a
sudden students believed that they
could learn and that another life was
possible. That is the power of one
person’s hope.
