Valeriia Kravchenko came to the US almost 2 years ago from the Ukraine to perfect her English. While studying at CE-Miramar, she was honored as a San Diego Promise Student. The Promise program allows SDCE students to transition to college for free. “I can take more than just a couple of classes. I can transfer to a university now that I have this opportunity,” says Valeriia. She is now pursuing her desire to teach music.
