“My vision is degenerative; so, I have been legally blind since I was 8… but my vision continues to deteriorate. When I had just graduated with a Master’s Degree in Nutrition, I wasn’t able to find employment. I just felt so much anxiety. Would I be able to work? Would I be able to contribute and share all the talent and ability that I knew I had inside of me and I knew that I could develop? It was a very real possibility that I might not be able to be successful at work.
Goodwill helped me the most by giving me the opportunity to grow and really put my talents and my strengths out there into the economy.”
