Help Myriam as she pursues her dream career
Myriam came to Reason to Give with a great work ethic, but she was a bit lost as far as where she wanted her career to go. She joined our program because she knew how important it was for her to accomplish her career goals, not only for her own happiness and stability, but also to be a positive role model for her daughters. After spending most of her adult life raising children and working, she had the motivation to start the next phase of her life, but lacked direction. Through Reason to Give, Myriam gained insight on how to define and pursue her goals. She learned tangible skills related to advancing her education. She also experienced personal growth to help her be a better parent and live healthier. Myriam left Reason to Give with the confidence to go after her dream career and a much better understanding of what she is capable of.
Myraim achieved her goal of changing careers and during the program got a new job, on track with where she eventually wants her professional life to go. While she says she learned a lot in all the classes, she found the connections she made with other students and staff, perhaps even more helpful. Myriam has joined our Cooking Matters program to continue her pursuit of a healthy lifestyle.
How You Helped
Without the support of the Reason to Give volunteer facilitators, all the knowledge and tools Myriam gained wouldn't have been possible. Myriam was particularly grateful for the parenting, healthy living, and continuing education classes.
