Favorite Family Memory: Several decades ago when we first arrived in the USA my son Daniel (3 years old) and I were recruited by the Head Start Program of Northern Virginia; that cold winter day when they knocked on our door and offered us the opportunity to access pre-k education and leadership training for me, that day changed our lives in the most positive way.  As I reflect on those early lessons I remain forever indebted to the education system in this country, my work at FACES reflects my gratitude as I continue to pay it forward.
