Nora Swanhart

An Amazing Woman

One great woman.

My grandma Nora was born in the Philippines. My grandma had many sisters. When my grandma was younger she and some of her sisters made a store. She sold clothes, candy, and some other goods in their store. When my grandma got older she decided she wanted to go to America. Coming to America made her very happy.

A lesson she learned.

Illness can make you stronger.

One of the most stressful parts of her life is when she was diagnosed with health problems. She learned how to be strong and how to cope with it. She would say don't let the negatives outweigh the positives. She would also say the key to happiness is surrounding yourself with family and loved ones. The lesson she learned sometimes illness makes you stronger.
