You can read her full Story of Hope below:
Starfish Project’s outreach teams met me when I was working in the brothels. When I first arrived, I lived in the shelter for a short time. I liked it there because it was similar to living in a family setting. Today, I live with my husband and my son. I also have an adult daughter who no longer lives at home.
I started working on the production team at Starfish Project, but today my job is to inspect the finish products and organize them. I make sure they are up to our standard and have no flaws. I also really like to wear the jewelry we make!
One of the things I enjoy most is the training Starfish Project provides. I have been taking computer and math courses and have enjoyed the process of learning. So far I have earned my Microsoft Word and Excel Certifications. I look forward to getting my Outlook certification and taking math classes. In the past I didn’t have opportunities to learn so I feel very fortunate to have the opportunities that I have at Starfish Project.
I feel like I am capable of growing personally and professionally because of the open environment. I can ask anyone if I have any questions and it is helpful to have people around to study with. The fact that our boss treats us like family is very significant to me as well. I love that we celebrate each person’s birthday every year!
