Mercedes came to us by recommendation of a friend from church. Mercedes was going through a very hard time in life and struggling with depression. She was not working and living in despair. Her friend convinced her to call and sign up for the course and she began class in August 2013. Mercedes was dedicated to the commitment she made in receiving one of the chairs in the class. As she learned she found her outlook on life began to change she had a new sense of HOPE and enjoyed her time at class and the people surrounding her at Mi Esperanza. When she started she did not know how to turn a computer on, now she knows how to use a computer and all the programs presented in the course. Mercedes was known in class for her punctuality to class and responsibility in her work.
