Through Columbia English Institute, Leyda works hard to provide quality English-language instruction to students all over the northern New Jersey area. Many of her students are recent immigrants with limited or no English proficiency, and her program helps them to gain the skills they need to succeed both in their personal and professional lives in the US. Columbia English Institute not only provides students with language skills, it also helps connect them to opportunities for jobs, where they can use their English skills, and other education certifications such as the GED.

Leyda is a repeat borrower in good standing with the Intersect Fund. She used her previous loan to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy. She will use the funds of this loan to further her business’ mission by purchasing computers and video equipment for her language learning programs.
