Alejandra and Joseph Gain Their High School Diplomas!

We’ve had a huge year of young professionals receiving their high school diplomas and now we’ve added two more to the list! We are so proud of Alejandra and Joseph for all of their hard work and perseverance to get to this point, we know it has not been an easy road. 

When asked about some of the challenges she faced along the way, Alejandra said there were many, but she continued to push through.

A lot of times I wanted to give up. I felt as though I was never going to get to where I wanted to be with all the craziness in my life.” 

She pinpoints the support of staff and friends at Hopeworks for helping her to remember to keep the big picture in mind.

“Those at Hopeworks taught me that there are going to be trials and tribulations to try to stop you from succeeding. Just remember to always keep pushing. No matter the circumstances. If you believe you will achieve. Most certainly you will.”

We are so excited to see where you both go from here!
