I am a Francophone from West Africa. I been here in America for thirty years. French is my official language in my native country, Togo. After high school in Togo I came to America in 1980, and I have been here since. After my children were born, I went back to school to get my degree. I got my Associate degree from Community College of Philadelphia in 1997. In 2003 I went to the Cheyney University of Pennsylvania and got my Bachelor's degree in English in 2006.
I went on to West Chester University of Pennsylvania and got my Master's Degree in French in December 2010. My education took a lot longer to get to this point because my three children were all born during the same time. Since education was not encouraged for women where I am from, I made myself and encourage my children to get educated. From this experience I have learned to help others to get their education through tutoring, teaching, and even how to get into college or into any type of education.
Besides helping others get interested in education, I worked at Cheyney University as a professional tutor for one year after I graduated and student tutored for the three years.
My hobby is to make jewelry and clothes. My jewelry is exposed in the flea market weekly. At the flea market jewelry making classes are giving to some customers who want to learn to fix and put together their own gem stone necklace set.
