When Jili walked through the doors of Hopeworks she had just lost her management position at Checkers and her sister told her she should come to Hopeworks. Her sister, Alejandra, was already a Recruitment Intern and working to obtain her High School Diploma. Jili admits that when she first started the training she felt lost, but when she earned her Training Room Internship she started to figure out all the opportunities that could further her education and career. "I know I will accomplish my goals by getting my car, my own place, and starting my career in Medical Assistance or Google IT, or Entrepreneurship".
Jili says that she learned patience while working in the training room something that has caused her to lose jobs in the past. Her proudest technical skills were learning how to code. When asked to describe Hopeworks in one word she replied, "Hopeworks to me, means success!"
