Acasha finds a safe space and an internship opportunity.

Acasha  was in her second year as a Bio-Chem major at Rowan University when she realized she was suffering from depression and anxiety. Her mental health was negatively impacting her grades and she needed a break. She found out about Hopeworks from a friend who was a Web Intern. Acasha was curious about building Websites and thought this would be a good opportunity to learn something new; she was most interested in the CRIB. 

Acasha felt supported and encouraged upon her arrival to Hopeworks. She knew that the welcoming environment jelled perfectly with her peaceful personality. Acasha moved through the training fairly quickly until she reached Javascript. She admits being perturbed and challenged, but overcame the challenge with the help of the training room interns. 

Acasha contributes a large part of her success at Hopeworks to her Career Readiness Coach, Tina. “Tina does care about my wellbeing and goals.” Acasha feels the addition of the GIS module in the training program gave her insight to the work of GIS and helped prepare her for the internship. She stated, “my future is looking really bright and I know that it's because of all the support and love I received from Hopeworks.” 

When asked to describe Hopeworks in one word, “Family”.
