I gained an invaluable experience during this process that developed my leadership skills while giving me the chance to create fulfilling memories for people.
I knew Atira Women’s Resource Society was the type of a company at which I could excel, but it wasn't until this morning that I truly understood how lucky I was, how wonderful it was to know each of you and to utilize my skills in such a thriving environment.
