Natalia Nigmonova Becomes a New American

Natalia Nigmonova

Natalia's native country is Bashkortostan, a small republic in the central part of Russia. She came to the United States in 2007. Natalia worked hard while attending writing and reading classes at the USM English for Speakers of Other Languages Program(ESOL) where she says Donna, Bart, Barbara and Claire "taught me not only about English, but about new opportunities and how to make a new life in America." PESLSF is happy to report that Natalia passed her Citizenship Test last fall. On November 16, 2012 she attended her ceremony where she took the Oath of Allegiance and received her Certificate of Citizenship.
