I come from a broken home and learned to survive at a young age and had many experiences I did not need. My goals are to be self-supporting, motivated and independent. The Bean Project has helped me work on my personal issues and helped me get ready for the real world. Women’s Bean Project is the greatest gift of hope. It has opened my eyes to a new reality, a reality I never thought it possible to touch. It has brought me structure and gave me the tools to build a stable life, and a commitment to keep pushing forward and setting goals.
When I came to the Bean Project I was lacking self-esteem and job readiness and so much more. Now I have held a job for over a year, have a resume and am going to school to get my GED. The training tracks in the program have taught me clerical skills that I will take with me when I leave. I can’t say enough about how good the Bean Project has been to me and how much it has changed my life. I am grateful to be given this chance. Thank you for believing in me.
