New Facilitator Spotlight
New Hampshire Humanities is delighted to welcome a new facilitator to our Connections program! Sunita Pereira is an ESOL instructor at the International Institute of New England in Manchester.
On joining Connections, Sunita says: “I will be bringing additional experiences to share with the students as I am an immigrant who made a similar journey from Kenya to the U.S. When I see the despair and concern, I will be there to share my own story of coming here with a family and only fifty dollars. Yes, I came here and worked in a factory as an hourly employee. Through hard work and schooling I was able to achieve my American Dream. I would give my students the encouragement and hope which is greatly needed. I want them to know, I understand their plight. When they are sharing their stories in class, I am able to help them as I understand what they are trying to say, as I speak Swahili, Gujrati, Hindi, understand French, some Spanish and Urdu.” Welcome, Sunita!
