Show your support for private school choice in Georgia!
Niang came with her family to the U.S. as Burmese refugees fleeing their country during a violent and deadly civil war. Now living in low-income refugee housing in Clarkston, GA, Niang’s parents work day and night in a factory so Niang and her siblings can focus on school.
Niang is able to attend a high-performing private school thanks to the Georgia Tax Credit Scholarship Program. As a student at the Atlanta Adventist Academy, she loves her classes and is thankful everyday for the chance to change her life and help her family.
“When we were back in our country, we could never dream of being here in the United States of America,” said Niang. “We are living beyond our dreams in America. We can attend a private school and that’s more than a blessing.”
Niang is interested in the medical field and says she will likely become a nurse. At Atlanta Adventist, the faculty knows that an important part of working with Niang is helping her believe in herself so she can reach her full potential.
