Maria Lopez

I attended Providence Public Library’s Citizenship Class and obtained my US citizenship!

PPL has a great team and this has been a great accomplishment. Thank you again for helping me gain the confidence, security and preparation needed to be able to attend my citizenship interview and pass the test.

I could write many pages for all the happiness and gratitude that my family and I have for you. You can count on all of us for any event or program where you require volunteers. Every day I had one of you on the phone for hours, helping me practice each question and the answers. Hopefully, many more people in the state of Rhode Island can benefit from this excellent program that helps people like me get better opportunities and provides security and confidence to us immigrants.

I want to especially thank Eva Al Hadad, Dave Barsamian, and Cindi Portno for all the efforts they made to prepare me for the interview. It is not easy to take hours of your precious time to help others in a selfless way.
