Opportunity Scholar, Fernanda Lima, featured in Cato Institute Video
Fernanda (22) was born in Brazil, and her mother brought her to the United States when she was only 4 years old so she could attend school here. Before Fernanda got a scholarship from TheDream.US fund and went to Delaware State University, she worked for a doctor who paid for her to become a certified nursing assistant and phlebotomist.
