My DI Experience
“My confidence grew as I learned to set goals and then achieve them.”
I came to Deseret Industries because I could receive job training while I was attending school. I was fearful of my ability to balance school and all of my responsibilities at the same time. My confidence grew as I learned to set goals and then achieve them.
During my training at DI, I was amazed at how many people there were to support me. My counselor helped me to discover what I really wanted to do, and my job coach was great at motivating me to be the best. I felt as if I had someone in my corner the whole time to support me when times were overwhelming. They could see how hard I was trying. I know it made them happy to see me accomplish my goals and head in a direction that will help me be self-reliant. Everyone at DI addressed my concerns with love and care. They helped me to believe that my future is worth fighting for.
I would love to work in an accounting office when I have finished school. The interpersonal skills and cashiering skills I have gained from my DI experience complement what I am learning at school. My life is better from this experience. It has helped me progress and pushed me to be better than I thought I could be. I really have loved the experience. Thank you.
