Just got out of job corp with a dislocated shoulder. Eager to work I applied everywhere for a couple months and nothing. Kept getting the Thanks for applying emails or the position has been filled. Desperate to do something meaningful in my life I wanted to see if I could get into college and follow my dream to work in the IT field. I've been working with IntelliDyne for 2 years now and got my Security+, I got my ITIL Foundation V3 certification, and I've been promoted twice making good money.
After I graduated high school in 2012, I attended Wesley College that fall. The combination of me being burned out from attending a magnet school, me not being a people person, I flunked out after 2 semesters with a 1.0 GPA. She referred me to a HOPE Project info session, I was hooked from the first moment I heard about the HOPE Project. I got CompTIA certified in 12 weeks and have since held jobs in major corporations like the Washington Post, and FDA. I am currently in my 4th IT job and pursuing my another Comptia certification.
This program CHANGED MY LIFE. I've always been hustling, sometimes working 60-70 hour weeks to support myself and my daughter. I spent most of my time away from Isabella not even making enough to live on our own. This amazing program gave me the tools to turn my life around in less than a year. I got CompTIA A+ and Security+,today I have not only financial freedom but space to grow as a person. Now I am proud to say a Network Support Specialist at a well known public health organization, and doing well. I got this job straight out of the Hope training program a year ago.
