EMILY’S STORIES


Helen won a Teacher's Award from the Language Learning Center and also the Best Presentation award for EGTC's Chef's Award Recipient for her empanadas and strudel.

Helen Lee was born in China and grew up in Vietnam before moving to the United States. She came to Emily Griffith after the medical supply company she worked for here in Denver moved to Mexico. 

With the help of the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program, she was able to take English classes at Emily Griffith, and improve her English skills. But Helen didn’t stop there! She made a plan to pursue technical training so she could get a job of her choosing, and enrolled in the Culinary Arts program, and the Professional Baking program soon after that. 

In March, Helen completed her Culinary Arts training and she is now just a month away from finishing the Professional Baking training, too. She loves the freedom and creativity that baking brings, and enjoys working in the bakery department at Village Inn, where she started in January, because they respect her and appreciate her skills. 

Helen says she is determined to complete everything she puts her mind to, and even though learning can be hard, she will never give up! One day, Helen hopes to work in a place where she can teach others what she knows.

Helen won a Teacher’s Award from the Language Learning Center and also the Best Presentation award for EGTC’s Chef’s Award Recipient for her empanadas and strudel. Congratulations Helen!
