From Our Mailbox: A letter from a BESS graduate

You have no idea how you helped me with the course I attended last year. I took your advice and your words of encouragement and faced the world. In short, I applied for a job and I got it! I nailed the interview. I was told by the interviewer that I seemed to know more than they do. I tailored the interview to focus on my volunteering - for the past eight months as a peer counsellor. Now I will be a Peer Support Counsellor on a new project at a women’s organization that works in collaboration with five other organizations. Fazia, I am so excited and happy I attended the B.E.S.S. course. I just wanted to make you realize that your program is so good and to keep teaching other women. May God bless you - for you are not selfish but willing to share your knowledge. May you accomplish your resolutions for the New Year and enjoy! – 2010 BESS Graduate
