I got Hired after my Summer Experience

September 08, 2014 YOUTH   + SHARE THIS

Dajanay Akridge, 18: Dajanay spent her summer assisting customers, shifting and rotating stock and cleaning the storefront of Max & Lily’s, a children's clothing and  Consignment Shop in West Hartford. The agency that placed her in this summer youth employment worksite is the Center for Latino Progress.  

“When I first started, I was nervous,” she said. “But I learned quickly how to break out of my shell, greet the customers and help them with what they need.” Dajanay attends the Nursing Academy at Hartford High and she would like to be a nurse. After completing her summer experience, Dajanay was excited to find that her supervisor was pleased with her performance and has decided to offer her an opportunity to work at the store after-school.
