Give Chances, a nonprofit organization, whose mission is to create and provide education programs for individuals with disabilities and children from low-income families

by Yaeram Lee

Heaps of projects never started, handful of assignments not completed, home cluttered. Finding my true passion in this situation was extremely difficult. I had to discover my “dream job” before a certain deadline- high school graduation. With school assignments piling up and a messy environment, it was even more difficult to think straight.
