Student Stories

Another year passed and as Beloved watched her friends on the stage getting a diploma, she realized she was falling behind. She transferred schools during both her freshman and sophomore year and began hanging with the wrong group of students at her new school. Her mom kept pushing her to take school seriously, but a lack of confidence and toxic relationship limited her motivation. Then, she met Nakato through CYC. With her help, Beloved finished all of her credits within three months. She got her GED and was concurrently enrolled in the Certified Nursing Assistant program at Emily Griffith Technical College. Today, Beloved is working part-time and taking classes to be an LPN.
