Hawa Joins BDT as Benefits Outreach Specialist!

Hawa joined Hopeworks in Jan 2021 after graduating high school and filtering through a number of seasonal and temporary jobs. She wanted more. She knew she could do more. So, she went after it. When she first completed her Hopeworks training, Hawa wasn’t immediately offered a job. It would be a few months before a position fell into place for her, but that didn’t stop her. 

She continued pursuing her undergraduate degree in Computer Science, she also worked on freelance projects as an independent game developer, and improved her technical and soft skills as well. A few months later, she was offered a full time position with Benefits Data Trust! 

"More than anything my journey through Hopeworks empowered me mentally. I made important connections with others and matured through my interactions there. Admin skills can always be taught but the soft skills necessary to thrive in a professional environment were developed immensely. I still have a long way to go on my journey, but the time I spent at Hopeworks sent me in the absolute best direction."
