Nirilis Olmo

Student, Luis Munoz Marin Middle School

Nirilis is overcoming the challenges of being a native Spanish-speaker in a primarily English-speaking school every day. She successfully tested into all English classes and was the winner of her school’s 2015 Essay Contest. Her dream is to combine her own language experiences and her grandmother’s love for baking to become a bilingual teacher and a pastry chef.
