FAN: My Story of Hope
I was introduced to Starfish Project through my cousin. I was one of the first women to join the company with Jenny. Working in this environment has really impacted me and I want to continue not only for my own growth but to help other women as well.
I worked my way up through production, and am now our Production Manager. I supervise all aspects of production and make sure that orders are completed on time. I manage over 20 women who work in production between our Headquarters city and Riverside branch. I like preparing the purchase orders that come through. And I love achieving our goal of making high quality products that get to our customers on time.
For my first four years at Starfish Project I lived at the shelter. Then I moved out and rented an apartment with another coworker. I loved living at the shelter because someone was always available to listen to you, pray with you, and give you advice when you needed it.
Since coming to Starfish Project, I have grown in confidence. Before, I was very timid and scared to do new things. I used to hide my face and feel insecure. Now, I am brave and do things even if I am scared. I am confident in myself and my leadership abilities.
