STEP Success Story – Sunita

“Through the Success Training Employment Program, I have gained much more confidence than I started with. I learned a great deal about emotional intelligence and how to manage myself, my emotions, and my relationships with others. The daily themed morning motivations have been helpful in boosting my self-confidence. Through the discussions, I learned skills that I could apply in personal life situations, as well as in professional/work settings. I refreshed my computer skills. I revamped my resume. I gained valuable practice, interviewing with actual employers. The Retail Learning Institute trainings equipped me with workplace skills I never had before. I liked doing the Vision Board – it was a fun, creative activity, but more importantly, I intend to reference it often, as I embark on my journey of self-discovery and self-improvement. I am a work-in-progress and I am not going to limit myself.”- Sunita
