NaKayla finds her way with help from Goodwill

NaKayla finds her way with help from Goodwill

Posted October 4, 2016

NaKayla came to Goodwill lacking confidence and self-assurance but wanted to work hard to find employment in the community.  After working with Goodwill employment specialists, NaKayla became more confident and resilient in her search for employment.  She is now extremely proud of her efforts and has been hired by the Toledo Zoo as a staff member in concessions.

“Goodwill taught me to be more confident in myself, keep advancing, and never give up my search for employment.  They showed me how to fill out an application, how to answer interview questions, everything,” said, NaKayla.  “I love my job, because I’m able to make friends and look forward to going to work each day.  Thank you Goodwill for all you have done for me!”

Goodwill is extremely proud of NaKayla and looks forward to helping her advance in her career!
