A New Life
“I have my dream career and Deseret Industries has helped me achieve it.”
I am originally from Nigeria in Africa. I came to the United States with my husband and two children. We struggled financially in a culture that was so new and different. One day, as I was watching television, I saw an advertisement about the Deseret Industries and how it changes lives. I went to my bishop and asked about the DI program. My bishop gave me a recommendation to work at the DI. I was so excited when I was hired. This was my first job in the United States.
Luckily for me, I had a job coach trainer who advised me and helped me set goals to achieve my future ambitions. He was a good motivator. I followed his advice, and now I am enjoying the blessings of working at the DI.
I had the opportunity to have a five week business partnership. I was able to dress nice and work in an office environment. I went to school and certified in phlebotomy and as a certified nursing assistant. Now I’m employed full-time at a nursing home. I have my dream career and Deseret Industries has helped me achieve it. Thanks to everyone who contributed in one way or the other to make my life more meaningful.
