Tania Caballero

Program: Basic Skills/High School Diploma

Tania Caballero grew up in Cuba under Fidel Castro’s hostile regime. She came to the U.S. without knowing a word of English. Gradually Tania became successful in her job after immersing herself in American culture to master her English skills. But in 2013, she suffered a brain hemorrhage that caused her to lose control of many of her abilities. Although she recovered over a five-year period, Tania continues to struggle with short-term memory loss. She courageously started classes at NOCE in January 2018, hoping to overcome her fears of the injury affecting her learning. She has done extremely well in both her English as a Second Language and High School Diploma Program studies. A role model to other immigrant students, Tania is grateful for the freedom and opportunities she has in America. Her dream is to one day attend college to study English and business management. Congratulations!
