For Alicia, "Hopeworks has given me another chance to make a better future for myself."

I was looking for a job that could teach me new skills and at the same time, I wanted to better my life. So after I read about Hopeworks offering training and Adult Basic Skills (ABS) classes, I had to come in for a tour.  When I earned my internship, I felt extremely proud of myself and grateful that the Youth Healing Team was going to give me a chance. The most important thing I've learned from my internship is that it is okay to ask for help or just ask questions in general. A lot of the time people are afraid to ask their coworkers or supervisors for help, or more information about a topic, but I've learned a lot of supervisors are okay with it. They would rather you have all the information you need than to struggle with something because you don't fully understand it. 

Before coming here, I felt that I would be forever stuck in low paying jobs that didn't make me happy with no High School Diploma. Hopeworks has given me another chance to make a better future for myself. One that I didn't think I could have. Hopeworks is life-changing!
