Faces of NDEC
Anne Marguerite Auguste
It was easy for Anne Marguerite Auguste to decide to attend NDEC. Her sister Lamercie had taken classes at the Center, too. “She said the teachers were wonderful, she was learning a lot, and she was very happy,” says Anne Marguerite. “It was really the only choice for me.”
A native of Haiti, Anne Marguerite worked as a journalist in that country for 20 years. She’s covered important events and met dignitaries such as former French Presidents Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande; Abdou Diouf, former President of Senegal; and former U.S. First
Lady Michelle Obama. She has also attended seminars and conferences at the White House. Today she studies ESOL and credits NDEC’s teachers for making it a good experience. “Every teacher is ready to help any student at any time,” she says. “That’s what makes NDEC so special.” Anne Marguerite’s hard work led to her being named an NDEC Ambassador in 2019. Anne Marguerite is still attending classes at NDEC. She intends to keep improving her English language skills. In the future, she hopes to own a cosmetics company.
