Walter was motivated to go back to school to begin a career that would support his family. He grew up in Antigua, a small island in the Caribbean, and immigrated to the U.S. in December 2011. Living right down the street from X-Cel's Dorchester site at the Log School, he eventually stepped inside to learn about the program. Walter started X-Cel's high school equivalency classes in September 2012 and soon realized that college was not out of reach. "X-Cel showed me that attending college was a possibility."
