"I feel bless because from I arrived to the USA my life change. All change when I began to study in the CNA (Center for New Americans). The most important thing was learn English for me. I love it.  It's a new challenge, but I did it say myself!  Now I feel comfortable with myself and very happy because I can speak with the people. And my thinking is "step by step". It's amazing, 37 years lived in Costa Rica and all those years never I had a lot opportunities like now than live in U.S.A. We bought a new house, my life is more relax now, I can study and work.  I meet beautiful people. Thank you USA and CNA for all your support."  Maricella
