This exhibit of selections from the Digital Archive of Literacy Narratives would not have been possible without the collaboration and wonderful work of all of the students showcased here. We offer our heartfelt gratitude to Keunho Shin, Sofia Gomez, TianWei (Sky) Wang, Alex Escote, and Medarka Murip. It is to Medarka’s memory, however, that we dedicate this work. Shortly after we interviewed Medarka, she successfully completed the ILEP program and returned to the Philippines. Sadly, soon after she arrived home and began teaching again Medarka was diagnosed with cancer. She died within months of her diagnosis. This chapter would not have been possible without her curiosity, generosity, and humor. Medarka was an excellent student and a dedicated and smart teacher. We respectfully dedicate this chapter to her and to her loving family.
