Karen is a listener. As one of eight siblings, she knows the value of mediation. She enjoys working out problems between her peers and would like to be a therapist or a sonographer when she is older. She has experienced bullying because of her cultural differences, but that doesn’t get in her way of personal achievement. Her struggle with learning English as a second language has only made her a stronger person who is determined to be self-reliant and successful.
