Graduate Says Earning Master’s Was Easiest Thing She Has Done

ORLANDO, Fla. — Ana G. Mendez University saw 188 of its students graduate from the bilingual university. Yet for one student, that was the easy part.

  • Graduate fled 2 dictator-led regimes
  • Arrived in U.S. with doctorate, yet washed cars at the airport
  • Had to become a U.S. citizen in order to graduate from a U.S. university

For Elena Tremble, receiving her Master’s Degree in Counseling was the easiest thing she’s done. Tremble fled two-dictator led regimes to get a chance to attend school in the U.S.

First, she left Cuba as a young girl when Fidel Castro took power to Venezuela.

Ten years later, she and her family escaped again when they noticed the same signs that plagued their home country.
