Reader StoryAdelita Briones

January 1, 2014

Adelita Briones is from Huehuetenango, Guatemala and she speaks Spanish and English. Adelita has 7 brothers but no sisters. She came to America six years ago because she wanted a better life with more opportunities.  Now, she lives in Bellevue with her husband and her six-year old son. Adelita has started speaking English with her son in order for her to practice her English skills.

Adelita is learning English because she believes it is important for her since it will allow her to get a better job and earn more money. Adelita is currently working at a restaurant and she works about 35 hours a week while studying English full-time and being a full-time mom. Even though she’s very busy, she is focused.

When she’s not working, she finds time to workout. She enjoys working out on the stairmaster and sometimes she relaxes in the sauna or Jacuzzi.  She really likes to watch: “Two and a Half Men” and she believes that she can improve her English by watching TV shows. Adelita also enjoys playing soccer and spending time with her adorable son. Now, Adelita has 5 of her 7 brothers living here in America but she misses those in Guatemala.  In America, Adelita really likes how clean everything is. She also likes that Bellevue is very safe.  Her long-term goal is to work more, play more, and get to Guatemala for a visit.  Since she has so many goals, she will certainly succeed!
