What are some of your favorite memories of working for DSAWM?
I liked going out to lunch, like when we would go to Palatte Coffee & Art Shop together. I also liked doing a presentation at Winner’s Cup this May. It’s one of my favorite memories because I got to advocate. I also liked having fun with my friends and getting dressed up.
What were your favorite jobs?
My favorite jobs were filing, answering phones, typing newsletters, copying papers, and writing thank you cards.
What jobs did you not like to do?
Cleaning the toys, and that is the job to get done!
What advice would you give Victoria, Jen, and Nate?
My advice to Jennifer, Victoria, and Nate is to keep working hard and don’t give up in life. Keep moving forward in life.
How do you feel about graduating?
I feel excited about graduating and I am looking forward to working on my future goals with my CLS worker.
What are you doing now that you’ve graduated?
I work at Cookie Chicks, McDonald’s, and still come back to help out at the DSA. I am also working hard on my goals. I will be volunteering at Brody’s Be Cafe this fall.
What are you excited about for the future?
I want to keep doing public speaking and advocating more. I’m excited to work on my future goals with my CLS worker.
