Last week winter term ended at CIES and with it came our latest EST@CIES graduating class. Certificates were handed out, speeches were made and a celebration lunch was held with students and teachers in attendance. Of the day's events, one speech in particular, from recent immigrant Dorcas Awoyemi, stood out. It serves as a reminder of just what kind of difference we can make with those who come to us for assistance during a time in their lives filled with the many difficulties that come with cultural transition. Watch her uplifting speech below.
