Another WEN Success Story!

Sue Huber came to WEN expecting one thing.. and she graduated from our 5-week program with much, much more. In her own words, she describes her journey:

"Words can't really do justice the gratitude I feel for this program. I was not expecting a life-changing experience, yet I feel like my life has changed. I was only expecting to get a job and maybe some help with starting my business, a resume and some job leads. I feel like I have a tool belt full of tools to assist me in all aspects of my life, not just finding a job or starting a business. I am truly humbled and blessed by what I've received here! I know the sense of joy that I receive from giving, so I can imagine how fulfilled the volunteers the volunteers are who give of their time and resources to keep WEN going. Coming to WEN was the best $25 I have ever spent! I am so proud of myself -- and my classmates. In my opinion, we were each willing to leap outside our comfort zones and SOAR! Thank you for pushing myself - I am forever grateful."

Sue is now embarking on her journey and her new path, with direction and a "tool belt full of tools." She is also filled with a new sense of purpose, direction -- and with a strong and vital network of support from her classmates and contacts from WEN. We are very proud of Sue and cannot wait to see what the future holds for her. Congratulatins and good luck, Sue!
