The Impact

Adriana Saad-Vinza
Adriana Saad is from Ecuador. Her grandmother brought her over when she was 15 years-old for a better future. She jokes that her plan did not go as she wished because she became pregnant two years later. Despite being an outstanding student, her dream of becoming a journalist was put on hold. After earning a GED, she decided to give college a chance and made a difference in her life and her daughter's. She works two jobs, is a full-time student and a full-time mother.

She writes a column titled Word To Express.

She can be reached at
