Transformational Experience- Graduate Student Update

Transformational experience shared by graduate student

TechieForLife graduate students like to come back to TFL and share their stories.

Reid’s transformational experience while at TechieForLife is a great example of what is possible.

“This week I had the opportunity to share with everyone at TFL my story.

Before I came to TFL, I was very addicted to video games.

Big smile from graduate student who shared his transformational experience with TFL students.

I would work just enough to pay my rent and car payment but nothing more because I wanted to just play video games.

One day my life got turned upside down.

I got kicked out from where I was living and my car got repossessed.

When I came to TFL I was really critical, I didn’t want anything to do with anyone.

As time went on no matter how many time I told staff I wasn’t going to change they continued to encourage me, and believed I could be something more than I did.

They helped me reach my goals of getting a tech job, attending college and most importantly helped me believe and have confidence in myself.

I currently have straight A’s in school, I’m working a part time job and I’m the happiest I have ever been in my life.” -Reid, TFL Graduate
