Student Stories: Zara Rodriguez Buenrostro
Zara Rodriguez Buenrostro
My name is Zara Rodriguez Buenrostro. I was born in Mexico. I came to the United States with my parents in 1982. They came for employment purposes. I have five children. I am a Nurse's Aide.
I came to LATC because I wanted to get my U.S. citizenship. The Citizenship class taught me a lot. It prepared me for the interview. The teacher and the mentor taught me one-on-one. I cried when I received my Naturalization certificate.
Now that I am a citizen, I can vote, travel, and apply for federal jobs. I would recommend LATC to anyone who wants to reach their goals. The school and the teachers are the best!
