THE STORY:

Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow is an amazing organization that has changed my life. The staff there are amazing and have helped me find a job and plan for a better future. Please support this amazing organization so they can help more people who were in a similar situation to me. 

When I was 14, I dropped out of high school to help take care of my mother who was suffering from diabetes. I had stopped attending regularly long before that to ensure my mother was well taken care of. 

When I was 16, my mother passed away. I felt immediatley lost and without person. Over the years, I would try to return to school but I couldn't face starting over without my mother. 

When I was 21, I gave birth to my daughter Caileigh. I knew I needed to provide for her and be a good example. I applied to Opportunities for a Better Tomorrow's Young Adult Internship Program so I could get work experience and a job. I interned with the Jamaica Aveune Business Improvment District where I helped enroll businesses in rewards programs and put on a fashion show. 

I'm now working at Old Navy and hoping to go back and get my GED so I can one day go to college and start my own business.
