I was born and raised in Atlanta. All of my family is here. I’ve always had a passion for working with computers. I got sidetracked coming out of high school, it was basically what I wanted to do then.
I’d been out of work for awhile. So, when I came to Westside Works, I didn’t exactly know what they had to offer. And when I found out they had IT, I got really excited. There are certain tests you have to take to pass into their IT program and I was lucky enough to pass them.
Per Scholas, I’ve never seen a place like this. They actually care about what you are going through. It’s almost a no-lose situation. I really feel like I’m ready and able this time, I’m just grateful.
