CONFIDENCE – that’s what I struggled with before joining CWJC. I thought I could do nothing; that I could not do anything right, and that I had no future. I was afraid.
I joined CWJC when I was going through a very rough time in life. My CWJC staff, CWJC Director, my mentor, and my children gave me that courage and support I was looking for. While in CWJC I made new friends. I learned a lot. Finally, I realized that it was my person- ality that helped me survive. My teachers took time for me after classes. They encouraged me. They were dedicated and loved what they were doing. It showed. I thank them again for their time spent to help me move forward.
I am proud to say that I graduated CWJC with perfect attendance. This too I did not know I could do. All this happened 2 years ago and to date still CWJC is here for me when I need help.
I got through a divorce; I survived. I am free to do what I want. My three children are good students, and my oldest just graduated from college. I am very happy. There are bumps here and there that I have to deal with, but who said life was perfect. Right??
I love what I do now, taking care of the elderly. I never dreamed that I could do it, and I love it.
I hope and pray more women join CWJC. I hope I can reach out to someone who needs that push as I needed to go forward. CWJC has been a blessing for me, and I will be forever grateful.
Congratulations, CWJC, for 20 years of hard work and dedication. I salute you all.
