I have been host parent to Beloved for almost 10 years. I am in awe how much Beloved has flourished since his arrival to the US. He was virtually uneducated when he first came. We paid for a private tutor to school him. He finished grades 1-12 in 4 years. The prospect of him possibly able to attend college fueled his passion to educate himself. He told me that he thought he would never be able to attend college. It was just a dream for him. He is due to receive his AA degree either by Fall this year or for sure next year by June. He will transfer to 4 year university to finish his degree. He works as a security job right now and has been in that position for less than 6 months and he has already been trained to work as a supervisor. With his earning he has almost solely supported his younger brother in Africa through college. I had no idea he had been using his birthday money, Christmas money and money earned doing odd jobs around the house to put his brother through college. He has never asked us for additional support since he knew our family was fully supporting him 100% already. His support for his brother is a small glimpse of who Beloved is. He would be an outstanding US citizen as he already has been since his arrival to the US.
