ESL Success Story

We would like to congratulate Zahra Akther Lasker for completing the ESL Class at Response to Love Center, after studying with us for the past year. Zahra is an immigrant from Bangladesh who came to America in 2015. She was searching for a better life for herself and her family. She lives here with her husband, son and daughter.

Zahra speaks proudly of her children’s accomplishments as her 27 year old daughter works as a banker and her 21 year old son, an engineering student, who currently studies at University of Buffalo.

During the year, Zahra volunteered at Public School 90, located in Buffalo. She shared time in the classroom with the first and second grade students. Today, she came to share the good news with Sister Johnice, Michael and the teachers. She was interviewed by the Principal at the school where she volunteered and has acquired a full time position as a Teacher’s Aide beginning Monday.

We extend our sincere prayer and best wishes to Zahra and her family as they fulfill their dream here at Response to Love Center and experience a journey into new life in the United States.

Zahra Akther Lasker – Sr. Mary Johnice C.S.S.F.
