Mirela's Story

Mirela currently works for the Broadcasting Board of Governors. She came to the United States 24 years ago with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism never dreaming she would find work as journalist in her native language for Voice of America, an agency of the Federal government which provides trusted and objective news and information in 47 languages to a worldwide audience of more than 236 million people. She credits her education as the catalyst that opened doors in her career.

"Education liberates minds and opens doors," Mirela says. "There is no better feeling than knowing that someone earned a diploma or degree thanks to designated resources from the CFC!"
