Before Year Up, my family struggled to make ends meet. Despite setbacks, I remained positive, responsible, and ambitious. The hardest and best thing I learned from the program was that everything counts, from not completing an assignment, to being one minute late. Now, as a Retail Sales Consultant at AT&T, I’ve been recognized as one of the top 10% salespeople in my district and was selected for a leadership program. I’m more capable of helping my family and strive to someday be an Ambassador to Haiti. I see myself as an agent of change in the Year Up movement – one more layer to strengthen the bridge that will close the Opportunity Divide.
