Being a partner in Reconnect Brooklyn has led me to believe that I bring ‘something to the table’. I spent so much energy before self-depreciating with no idea about my own talents, and honestly feeling ‘useless’. I have to say that being a part of the community, I know where I want to go and what I have to do to get there. I will always be grateful for the guidance, the re-enforcement and the support. I’m currently working as an office assistant in Westchester County and finally appreciating who I am.
