Alyssa Cotellese

A Brief Overview of Me

Hi! My name is Alyssa Cotellese and I am 21 years old. I am from Boyertown, Pennsylvania where I live with my parents and younger sister when I am not at school. I am a junior here at Millersville University and I am studying Early Childhood Education and Special Education. Here are a few identity markers that represent me!

How The Middle Class Has Affected Me

From being raised in the middle class, I have learned to appreciate everything I have and to be respectful and giving to those who are not as fortunate. From watching my parents work and be members of the middle class, I have been taught to work for what I want and appreciate what I have. All of the opportunities that I have experienced between my three jobs have allowed me to grow and learn and appreciate work. I have created a determination in me to work hard and be the best I can be and eventually raise a family in the middle class.
