Perla, 2021 Wall of Fame Recipient

Perla is currently a 6th Grader at UCC Acosta Middle School and a 2021 Wall of Fame Recipient!

Three years ago, Perla came to the United States with her family and did not speak any English. She recalls the challenge of attending school not knowing the language, but her work ethic and discipline helped her keep on the track to success.

Turning in assignments on time, treating teachers and peers with respect and kindness and her positive attitude all contribute to Perla's success. Outside of the classroom, Perla also plays soccer as both a defender and a midfielder.

Perla has big plans for her future. Her goal is to pursue a career that will help others and is interested in becoming a nurse, lawyer or a economic business professional. Her desire to help others comes from her parents' inspiration. 
"My parents taught me that one must give with the heart and to help the ones who need it the most. I know that if I follow these rules, I will find the perfect career for me."​

Perla is honored to be a 2021 Wall of Fame recipient and hopes that she can serve as an inspiration for other young girls who are working to learn the English language.
