Mayra Millan is the daughter of a single mother. And they’re tight.
So when Mom was diagnosed with congestive heart failure a couple of years back, “I was devastated,” Mayra tells KERA’s Krys Boyd. “The good thing is, I didn’t have to learn the hard way. She’s doing fine now.”
On Students Speak Out: A KERA American Graduate Special, we’ll hear from Mayra and five other students who know what it takes to finish school. The program airs on KERA TV tonight at 7 p.m.
