Revere resident honored as one of the “29 Who Shine”

alt

Revere resident Aiman Masalawala was recently recognized as a member of the 2017 “29 Who Shine” class, a commencement season awards program to recognize 29 outstanding student graduates from the Commonwealth’s public higher education system. Masalawala is a 41-year-old mother who came to the country from India 10 years ago.

Her desire to obtain a college degree to become a teacher was driven by heartbreaking circumstances. For seven years, Aiman attended school daily with her special needs daughter, serving as her personal aide. When her daughter died in 2012, Aiman decided to pursue her own college education, inspired to turn personal loss into a way to help others.

She enrolled at North Shore Community College (NSCC) and maintained a 3.83 GPA while also working as a teacher’s aide with special needs children in the Revere Public Schools. She is the recipient of a Foster Furcolo Scholarship at UMass Boston, and will be beginning classes there after graduation this spring from NSCC.

Juan Jaramillo from State Senator Joe Boncore’s office and Ricky Serino from State Representative RoseLee Vincent’s office presented legislative citations to Masalawala at the State House ceremony.
