Da'Sean

I am a Individual Development Specialist for The Cara Program I've been working there over two years. My job includes helping our students needs on a more personal level kind of like a life coach. I help them in many ways to become more self sufficient so they can succeed in life. What motivate me the most is seeing the excitement on the students faces when they accomplished the goals that they set for themselves, especially the ones who didn't believe in themselves, that's an awesome feeling.
