Mayra Reyes: From Shafter to Berkeley by Lizeth Carrillo

Congratulations to fellow Shafter Education Partnership tutor Mayra Reyes!

The Shafter Learning Center wishes you the best in all of your future endeavours!

 

See below for a partial piece on Mayra written by Emma Goss from Eyewitness News on June 8, 2018.

 

This fall, Mayra Reyes is moving from the fields of Shafter to the fields of science and engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, but it wasn't simply academic achievement that got her there.

At age 17, Reyes and her family immigrated from Mexico to Shafter, and Reyes faced culture shock and a language barrier.

"It was hard because I didn't know any English. I didn't know how to write, how to speak English."

She picked it up rather quickly, and Reyes, now 22, recently graduated in the top of her class from Taft College with degrees in mathematics and engineering.

She now has a full ride to UC Berkeley's civil engineering program.
