Meet Your Neighbor: Ashley Stewart

I enrolled in Voyages South Transfer High School to make a change in my life. My friends were graduating all around me, and I was still many credits away. In Voyages, I learned about QCH’s Learning to Work (LTW) Program, which offers academic and emotional support and a paid internship to help students earn an income and gain experience in the work force.

My LTW counselors helped me keep my grades on track and find my first job. I could call my counselor at any time of the day. She became my rock - something I’d never had in my life before.

With her support, I graduated from Voyages and am now enrolled at LaGuardia Community College. She also helped me enroll in QCH’s College Access and Success Program, which offers the same kind of counseling support to college students. I’m now pursuing my degree in Criminal Justice, and I’m on track to graduate this June.

No matter what stage of life I’m in, I know my QCH counselors will always have my back. #QCHMeetYourNeighbor .

Meet Your Neighbor: Cesar Martinez

As an architect, I used to design projects in my country, Dominican Republic. I never considered moving to the United States, but one day, I was robbed at gunpoint in my house. Nothing was the same after that. This, and other details, led me to travel all over the US. Finally, I decided to move to New York in search of tranquility, security and a new beginning.

Studying English at Queens Community House gave me the confidence to interview for positions in my field. In interviews, I was told I had the experience, but that I’d have to improve my English to advance. Today, I am continuing to learn the language, while laying the foundations to return to my career.

I was never one to pursue the American Dream. I accept the reality and difficulties of being an immigrant in the US, regardless of skill level or experience. But, with determination, patience and support, I’m taking my life back.
