Roza followed her two sisters through the CCG Job Training program after emigrating to the U.S. from Ethiopia inÂ 2013. She graduated the Level 1Â class with flying colorsÂ and wentÂ from shy and quiet around the staff to always smiling andÂ laughing. Following her graduation, she stayed with CCGÂ and completed paid on-the-job-training through theÂ Department of Labor. At the end of that program she wasÂ hired onto the production team. Rozaâ€™s positive attitude andÂ strong work ethic made it impossible for us to let her go.
At CCG sheâ€™s working to overcome one of our mostÂ common barriers â€“ limited English skills, but she takes thisÂ in stride. Roza is able to support both her father and herselfÂ because of the skills sheâ€™s learned, and sees CCG as herÂ family. When asked if she likes it here, she gives us a â€śyesÂ please!â€ť
