It] 15 2E! 25 3t] 35 On my first day of school, I didn’t speak a word of English. I felt lost and terrified when I set foot in the classroom. Lucky for me, my teacher that year was Dorothy Collins. My family had fled {Chiba in 1959. I was only a year old at the time, but I remember the pain of leaving my country and my grandmother so abruptly. I had no time to prepare for this sudden change. My father, Jose, had been a military policeman under the President when Fidel Castro’s forces invaded. My dad was jailed the night of the takeover and blacklisted afier he was released about five months later. With little chance of getting a job, he knew that the best hope for his family was to start over in America. We headed to Miami, which wasjust a sleepy tourist town back then. We settled in a cluster of apartments with other Cuban women and children who had immigrated. The women were close-knit and supportive. While I felt safe, I was also isolated as I had no friends my age nor did I know anything about the world outside my home. We all spoke Spanish, and I rarely heard English. Finally, when I was five, we moved to San Antonio. I started Year One at Winston Elementary, near the military base. I’d been looking forward to school, but that initial day was a complete shell shock. I came home and told my mum I’d learned my first English word: stupid. It was the nickname a boy had given me. In every way possible, I was set apart from my classmates. I was the only Hispanic student. I couldn’t communicate in English. While the other kids ate bologna sandwiches for lunch, 1 are tortillas made fiom scratch. One person made that year bearable for me: my teacher, Mrs. Collins. She was young and Afi‘ican American, so I think she understood how I felt as the only non? white kid. Without taking time away fi‘on‘r her work with the other students, she would help me sound out “See Spot run“ and “Tom is a boy”. Back then, there were really no tools to help teach English as a second language, but Mrs Collins never doubted I could catch up. Still the teasing continued. The boy who called me stupid was still mocking me for my accent. I remember he was the holder of our class‘s reading award. It was an honour given periodically to a student, based on excellence in schoolwork, participation and homework. I wanted that award. As Mrs. Collins cheered me on, I gained confidence and developed language skills. By midyear, I was well on my way to speaking English fluently and had a good grasp on reading. With the award ceremony coming up, I worked as hard as I could. The day finally came, and I was so nervous. When Mrs. Collins armounoed me as the winner, it was my proudest moment. I got a fancy certificate and a blue ribbon that she pirured to my dress. I took the reading award right out of the boy’s hands, butI felt so happy with myself, there really wasn‘t any room for gloating. My winning caused a mini uproar that was heard by many parents and my teacher. The mother of the boy who teased me complained that the only Hispanic in the class, the girl who had just leamed English, had taken the prize from her son. However, in her strong, gentle way, Mrs. Collins stood her ground. It was an excellent lesson in fairness. From then on, I worked even harder in school, earning Continued.. . rsrrcywwnnarrwrtaauawamu st 14 LEE]!!! HUN... wflflfifl LEEEL S JABUARY m A’s. Mrs. Collins helped me understand that I had an ear for language, so in 45 secondary school I studied French and minored in it in university. As I began enjoying success as a singer, I mentioned Mrs. Collins in various interviews when I was asked about people who had inspired me. Mrs. Collins taught me a lesson in fairness that I‘ve never forgotten. I can’t tell how many times the persevering spirit she instilled in me has guided me through challenges in my life. I 51] feel blessed that the universe brought Mrs. Collins and me together all those years ago. My Year Cine teacher didn’t just teach me the language; she helped me find my voice.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
