Help to Overcome
“My job coaches were there to share their knowledge and help me with both work and school. “
I was struggling from injuries to my shoulder. Not knowing what to do, my bishop suggested that I participate in the Deseret Industries training program, where I could not only receive much-needed income, but training for a new future. Before I began at DI, I received my high school diploma and had started classes at a technical school. School was a bit overwhelming, but having my job at the DI provided me with confidence and hope. When I first came to DI, I didn’t know much about clothing merchandising, but I came to work each day to do the best job I could. My job coaches were there to share their knowledge and help me with both work and school.
Through all of my ups and downs, my job coaches were there for me and I thank them. I did finish my technology course. Within a couple of months, I received a call for a job interview with a great company and was offered a good job. Without the input of the great people at Deseret Industries, I would not have overcome the obstacles in my life.
