Lydia's story

In 2008, I arrived in Denver, Colorado to complete my doctorate in Education at the University of Denver. In class, repeatedly I heard professors and colleagues state that you were not academically successful if you were a minority. I did research and realized that the reason for this was the lack of affordable and accessible early childhood education for immigrant, minorities and people of color. When I graduated with my doctorate in 2016, my one passion was to rectify this discrepancy. I opened a family childcare preschool that offers a high quality early childhood education to immigrants, minorities, and people of color.
