Stories from Pace Lee

Ximena's Story

Ximena enrolled at Pace Lee in April 2018 struggling with truancy and academic issue, related to a history of abuse and homelessness. Ximena excelled at Pace, taking full advantage of the social services and academic support. At Pace, Ximena learned to establish boundaries with her family and improve her school attendance. Last spring, Ximena had an opportunity to tour Florida SouthWestern College. After graduating in June, she is currently enrolled at FSWC full time and working part-time. Ximena no longer allows others to stop her from achieving her goals and hopes to complete a business management degree.
