Gifted Hands New York City
Through the Gifted Hands' P.E.T. (Potential, Empowerment and Train) program, Zequenta learned skills to start her own jewelry business and has regained confidence in herself.
For the first time since leaving an abusive relationship Zequenta is now back on her feet with an apartment in the Bronx for her daughter and her-self. And it all started with a small plastic bag of a few beads and a piece of cord...
Zequenta decided to give back to her community by becoming a jewelry design instructor to youth at risk at the Stratford House. The program has been so successful that some of the parents have been coming to class too!
Congratulations Zequenta and keep up the good work!
