"Marlin Hernandez's drive to excel has been kindled by things she saw in her home country, the Dominican Republic. Her mother never finished high school and spent her life in poverty; an older brother who did not complete his education turned to drugs. Today, Marlin — who moved to New York City when she was 15 — is taking classes while also working part time as a teacher's assistant at an after-school program for children with special needs. Marlin expects to graduate with an associate degree in early childhood education in May and immediately pursue her bachelor's degree. @kirstenluce photographed Marlin, 25, blowing bubbles with her children Maialee Ozuna, 3, Dianme Ozuna, 5, and Zeviell Ozuna, 2, at their home in the Bronx."
