Ingrid de Leon: "Inspired by TAP students"

My visit to Salvador da Bahia this past July 2010 provided me with first-hand experience on the success the Alagados Project is thus far.  The energy of everyone involved is simply- energizing and invigorating. As a Higher Education professional for the past three years at LaGuardia Community College-CUNY, a public two-year degree conferring institution in New York City, I have learned through my interactions with students and my statistical projects in graduate school that motivation, is a key and determining factor in student success.
