Citizenship Dream Comes True
Farideh Shodja, a student at The Moore County Literary Council, just realized the life-long goal and dream of becoming a U.S. citizen. Farideh has been working with her tutor, Marilyn Powers, at the Read Moore Center for several months in order to achieve this goal of citizenship status. After much hard work, Farideh’s application was approved on March 25, 2016. On April 8th in Durham, N.C., Farideh and 60 other individuals were sworn in as U.S. citizens.
