"With the help of WIA, I now have hope of finding better career opportunities in my chosen field of study", said Lee. "The encouragement and support that I received from the WIA staff has been outstanding and a huge boost to my confidence. I will always be grateful for the opportunity that the program has afforded me. My life will be greatly improved through higher education and the future for me and my family is much brighter."
