“Before, I didn’t have much confidence in myself. Since I met Lacee, I’ve gotten the skills to get out of my shell. We’re a team.”
Lacee explains: “To meet Tiana’s goal, we’re delivering a Transition to Work program at her state high school. It’s all about bridging the gap between high school and employment and making that transition as streamlined as possible. The things we did specifically were building her resume, doing mock interviews and building her confidence. We focus on her strengths and what she can do as opposed to what she can’t.”
“I’m different, but not less.” — Tiana
Their hard work paid off. Tiana secured a trainee retail position working at a newsagent and, in recognition of her efforts, was nominated School Based Apprentice or Trainee of the Year. Right now, she’s excited about her future and her confidence in herself continues to grow. “People say to me, ‘You’ve got a disability – you can’t do this.’ Well, no! If you can, I can.”
