“Once enrolled in the STRIVE program, Gailyn tackled issues of discipline, responsibility and clarifying goals for herself.”

Before

Gailyn was burdened with a very large student debt for training which had not translated into employment. She suffered from anxiety, depression and self-doubt and, without focus in her life, she tended to be shy and anti-social. She was hesitant to sign up for STRIVE when she first heard about it.

During

Once enrolled in the STRIVE program, Gailyn tackled issues of discipline, responsibility and clarifying goals for herself. She learned multi-tasking, attention to detail, and translating skills into actual performance. Just as importantly, she learned how to manage debt to create financial stability. As a STRIVE graduate Gailyn moved on to Office Operations training and became certified in Microsoft Office. With a “30 second elevator speech,” a solid resume and interviewing practice she was job-ready!

After

Gailyn was hired for office administration at an engineering firm; two months later she was promoted and given a raise. Gailyn is proud to also have completed a course in debt consolidation for her outstanding student loans. It is now her objective to build a strong future for herself and her son. Gailyn is also keen to encourage others to follow in her path. She credits the passion and support of all the staff as crucial to her success.
