Gloria A. Swift immigrated to the United States in 1973. She proudly served in the United States Army as a Data Analyst. She was the Post’s first black female member of the Color Guard and was named Distinguished Graduate at the Instructor’s Training Course. She joined the Foster City Police Department as its first female officer. Although it was challenging, Ms. Swift hoped that she made it a little easier for the women who would follow in her footsteps. In Banking, the narrative was, “If you want something done, give it to Gloria Swift.” Her experiences in the aforementioned occupations were documented in The True Story of an Illegal Immigrant Who Became a Citizen of the United States. In Education, she held multiple degrees and credentials, including National Board Certification. Her experiences were recorded in Thank You, Ms. Swift – It’s nor about As and Bs. Just published, It’s the Memory of an Old-Fashioned Christmas, in which she recounts celebrating Christmas as a child in Belize.
Ms. Swift authors stories about real people. She does not shy away from topics that affect human lives, including illegal immigration and child abuse. In her spare time, she serves as Director of a non-profit organization that was established in memory of her parents, John and Adele Swift Development & Enrichment Center, to serve people in Belize, who are struggling every day to put food on the table and or provide for their children’s educational and medical needs.
