Becoming an adult is not as easy as I thought it was when I was a child. Along the way you are up against the odds and you are surrounded by struggles before you can reach your goals. I am glad that I am fortunate to have positive influences in my life like HUB. Since being a part of HUB, I feel like I can accomplish the goals that I set in my life day by day. When I first became a part of HUB, they treated me like I was a part of their family and they listened to my problems and they told me they was going to help me.
At first I thought it wasn’t going to be the help that I needed because I wanted to be successful, as in have a job, maintain my grades and work on my other goals in the meantime. But after meeting with them, I really realized that they were very down to earth people and are here to help me. At first I needed a ride to school, and they provided me with a monthly bus pass so I could have a ride to school every day and I could stay on top of my grades. I really appreciated that. I also didn’t know too many things about careers, and they taught me many job skills, as in to fill out an application correctly, dress appropriate for interviews and what to say in them.
When I used the skills they taught me, it got me a job. I was thankful for the HUB. They have helped me in numerous ways. They have taught me the most important thing, responsibility. They helped me become more of an adult by showing me skills that I need in life, and help me reach my short and long-term goals.
It’s good to know that there are people out there who really care. I continue to use their help because without them I wouldn’t be a responsible person and take on the life struggles that I am surrounded by, and become an adult. Being around positive people has a good effect on a person. People who care can help you reach your goals…
