Meet Your Neighbor: Yolanda Vaquero

“I came to the United States from Mexico when I was 17 years old. The whole country of Mexico is very poor, so we came to the U.S. to have a better life and a better education.

“I started coming to QCH over 10 years as a student in the English classes. I knew I needed to learn English so that I could help my children with their school work.

“After I finished my English classes, I saw the English for Speakers of Other Languages program was looking to hire a receptionist, so I applied and they hired me! I eventually was promoted and now I work as the Front Desk receptionist for QCH.

“QCH has given me such great opportunities to grow as a person and as a professional. Now I can help people like QCH helped me. That’s what I love about QCH. There’s this community of people helping one another out and being there for each other.”
