Meet Deysy

Workforce Challenge

Deysy wanted a medical career, but faced a barrier to employment in the field of her choice without her GED.

Workforce Solution

Working closely with her case manager and lab staff, Deysy was able to earn her GED in about six months. The math portion was her biggest challenge, so she waited until she was confident in the material before completing this test.

Outcomes & Benefits

Deysy obtained her GED in January, and was one of the first GED clients to apply for the Bright Futures grant. She worked hard to overcome her unease about math and gained a lot of confidence in her learning abilities. With the help of the Bright Futures grant, she will be able to attend classes for dental assisting.
