EMILY’S STORIES


"It has been my desire to succeed in life and I believe that having a good education is the foundation of good success."

Lillian is a graduate of our HSE program. Lillian is originally from Nigeria and came to Denver in 2016. She came to Emily Griffith to continue her education. The GED program was her starting point and her goal was to then continue to CNA and then LPN and from there additional training in nursing if she has the chance.

Lillian says her husband encouraged her and helped explain concepts. Laura Blom gave her textbooks to practice reading, Martha in the SSC was really helpful as well. Lilian used the SSC to get help with math questions and Martha would help her out, and Laura was always there and she approached her on breaks to ask questions. The encouragement she received was really important to staying positive and ultimately achieving her goal.

Lillian passed her GED and she is now preparing to apply to the CNA program! “It has been my desire to succeed in life and I believe that having a good education is the foundation of good success,” says Lillian. “I would like to thank Laura, and Emily Griffith for showing me the way and for providing me the opportunity to achieve one of my goals.”

Congratulations Lillian!
