Success Stories

A story of persistence and hope.

Veronica completed her GED program last year and was able to enter the internship program at Multi-Service Center, a WDC funded WIA youth service provider. Overwhelmed and not sure about next steps in her life, Veronica almost quit her internship. However, with her own will, perseverance, and encouragement from staff, she stuck through and finished her internship at the Office of Special Services at Shoreline Community College. After completing her internship, Veronica participated in a Barista Training Program and did a great job of multi-tasking and dealing with customers.

Her experience in dealing with customers and having to handle multiple deadlines and projects in her past experiences contributed to her success in her current job at O’Reileys. Veronica is currently taking classes at Shoreline Community College, furthering her education, and exploring career options as a Veterinarian.
