Arieon’s Story

Hear from Arieon about her time enrolled in New Moms’ Job Training program as a production assistant at our social enterprise candle company, Bright Endeavors.

“Despite having good standing with previous employers, I came to Bright Endeavors to use it as a stepping stone to my dreams of going into the medical field. I am also a part of other programs offered by New Moms, the parent nonprofit of Bright Endeavors. When I heard about the job training program, I couldn’t resist!

I have learned so many things through the program such as strengthening my math skills, accountability in the work place, and being a leader!

Other than building my network through making professional connections, my goals are to work towards a career I love and gain confidence in professional situations like interviews. I hope to also go back to school to help with my goal of being in the medical field.

I am growing as a mother by growing mentally and emotionally. Being that motherhood has so many ups and downs, every day can be challenging. This program has reassured me that I have the skills I need to raise a child and to know I’m financially stable is a big plus.”
