From school to work and beyond – there’s no stopping Houda

Houda is a lovely young lady with a smile to match her warm personality. She was encouraged by her school, Dianella Secondary College, to engage with Edge to secure a job when school had finished. It’s been a really successful partnership so far! Edge has assisted Houda in securing three positions since finishing school.

“My Edge Job Coach Aleisha supported me on the first shift at the Hairdressing Salon and Ki Grocery. She eased my worries and made me feel confident, comfortable and relaxed.” Said Houda.

We asked Houda about her role at Ki Grocery store; “I like my job because I can take my time in completing my role and I take pride in what I do. Finding employment has changed my life, especially my mental health. It gives me purpose and something to do. I enjoy earning money and being independent.”

Her advice to other people with disability looking for work “I would like to say that you are to keep on going. Do what makes you happy… you only have one life.” And to Employers, she added; “Give clients from Edge a chance. Edge are very supportive with Clients and Employers.”

Thanks for your very wise and kind words Houda! It’s been a pleasure watching you successfully transition from school to employment, and thrive!
