Her advice for other students is to "never stop thinking big! You are never too young or too old to follow your dreams!"

Irma is from Juarez, Mexico. She came to the U.S. when she was 5 years old and has lived in the U.S. for 60 years and in Denver for 30 years. 

She works as a Street Supervisor for RTD, where she writes memos about accidents and incidents reports.  She chose to study at Emily Griffith because she wanted to improve her written English. She would like to move into a lead supervisor position but she needs to be able to communicate at a higher level so that others can easily understand what she writes. 

To help her achieve her goal of becoming a lead street supervisor for RTD, Irma has taken classes that RTD offers, as well as English classes, and is learning computer skills. Her dream is to get a bachelor’s degree in management. 

Her advice for other students is to “never stop thinking big! You are never too young or too old to follow your dreams!”
