Shakena’s personality and positive attitude have been a bright light in our Jobs for Life class and have encouraged both fellow students and champions alike. Her life is focused on her two young children, yet through JFL she has realized a critical key to anyone’s success: She is important and worth focusing on as well. She is energetically pursuing a new job as she strives to better herself for her whole family. Shakena has opened up about her hopes and dreams throughout our time together and has started to easily share her trust that God has a plan and purpose for her as well as a perfect job waiting for her. I am blessed by her friendship and trust that amazing things are headed her way!
