"In school, my least favorite subject was reading, and the hardest was writing. I had to do a lot of extra work, especially with spelling and grammar—I have trouble with those in English too. As a second language learner, you have to have a strong academic foundation in your first language, so that you can transfer those skills to your second language. Many times it took me longer to complete writing assignments."Manuel Zaldivar (CT '16)
