“I am an immigrant from Ecuador and my experience at LaGuardia was amazing. The support I received at LaGuardia helped change my life. After I graduated, I was one of the first transgender women ever accepted to Wellesley College. One day, I hope to become a civil rights lawyer. Thank you LaGuardia!” - Ninotska Love
