A New American

Response to Love Center ESL student Becomes an American
Joan Reeverts – Isratrara Chawdhury – Sr. Johnice

Isratrara Chawdhury is from Bangladesh and has been in the United States for five years. She studies English as a Second Language (ESL) at the Response to Love Center in Buffalo, New York. When she first came to classes she knew very little English and now has worked her way up to Intermediate ESL classes.

Isratrara has become friends with Sister Johnice and the staff, volunteers and especially her ESL teacher Joan Reeverts. Her dedication to learning the customs and language has been an inspiration to all of us especially her fellow students.

On Wednesday, July 20, 2016, Isratrara and her husband took the U.S. Citizenship test and both passed. On August 18th they will attend the Citizenship swearing in ceremony. Sister Johnice was invited by Isratrara to attend as one of her guests.
