“I’m proud to be part of the IDEAL program.”

Hometown: Waterbury, CT

I’m proud to be part of the IDEAL program. They have made it easy for me to work towards achieving my goals. The faculty are approachable and always willing to provide additional support when needed. The experience is great and I recommend it to all of my friends and colleagues.

I have been trying to continue my education for quite some time but it was the faculty of the IDEAL Program that took me step by step to help me get started. I am grateful. My supervisors at Ability Beyond Disability, as well as my family, have been a great support. My supervisor checks on me regarding my progress and she allows me to adjust my schedule as needed to succeed. My niece, LaTesha, has been and continues to be my cheerleader. I’m blessed to have all these people in my life.
