Taking Advantage of Everything Hopeworks Has to Offer

Hien, doing great work in the web department, came to the United States on a study abroad program and earned her associates degree at Camden County College where she studied computer graphics. While there, a professor referred her to Hopeworks and she then contacted us to start the training program. Shortly after completing training, Hien was advised through a Hopeworks Academic Success Coach to apply to the Townsend Scholars program. This scholarship covers tuition, books and fees for Hopeworks youth who meet the requirements and are pursuing a associates degree.

Hien says what she likes most about the Townsend Scholars program is the book club. She started to pick up the reading habit saying reading is super important, especially for an international student like her, and feels that it helps to advance her English.

In the web department, Hien is currently learning to work on wordpress and communicate with clients in a professional manner. Hien believes, “I am improving myself by learning more coding languages and implementing them on different self-projects. Thanks to the web department, I learned to be professional in communications through email with clients.” She says she is pushed to work hard, because everyone at Hopeworks is passionate and dedicated. Hien also states, “Billimarie, the web director, let us know that we always should work together as team work and help each other to achieve the best result.”

In addition to taking advantage of the Townsend Scholarship and learning web development, Hien has received a lot of help from Life Readiness Coaches. She says “without them, I would not be able to finish my university transfer applications.They help me with everything from personal lifestyle to professional. I can never have as much support from anywhere else except Hopeworks.”
