Maria Judite Gavinho

Seamstress and Mother

Maria moved to Newark all the way from Portugal to provide her daughters with a better future. She loves the culture of the city and felt at home for the past 30 years as she watched her daughters thrive educationally and professionally. During that time, she was able to take her passion for sewing and hone her skills as a seamstress in the city—she even designed and created her own daughter’s wedding dress.
