Celest came to Unitech Training Academy looking and hoping for big changes. She and her autistic son were living in a homeless shelter in Lake Charles Louisiana. They had no home, no car, and depended on government assistance for basic necessities. She knew something had to change and that she had to step up to the plate and prove to herself and her son that she could take care of them both.
She enrolled in the EKG/Phlebotomy day program. She attended class Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 1 pm. Celeste not only managed to attend school daily but she took on two jobs to make ends meet. There were days where she felt like going on was impossible. That’s when her instructor would encourage and push her to keep moving forward. Celest credits her instructor for a lot of her success to this day.
