Gwendolyne Martinez, Accounting

Gwendolyne Martinez

Think you’re busy? So is Gwendolyne Martinez. Several days a week she’s up at dawn to transport her girls to school in Washington Heights, then off to her job in Brooklyn. When the rest of us are heading home, she’ll be headed to The Bronx for accounting classes from 5 to 10pm. Why does she do it? Because she’s seen hard work pay off.
