David Zubin 24, is a current student KCC’s Project Rise. Since enrolling, he has made it his mission to earn his TASC Certificate and find employment. Although it hasn’t been easy, in 8 months he has come closer to meeting goals–reaching over 100 internship hours, finding part-time employment and, working his way to taking the TASC Exam. “I love Project Rise and I focus on what is important: getting my GED, completing internship hours, and working at Applebee’s. I love working!”.
His hard work has paid off. David is the first Ambassador in Project Rise’s Ambassador Program. Since taking on this new role, his class attendance, participation, grades, and confidence have all gone up. “Now I feel important, like I am really needed. Sometimes I get excited and brag on Facebook and to my friends about what I do as an Ambassador.”
PR’s Program Director, Dina LiMandri and Program Counselor, Anneka Werner-Gavrin continually praise his achievements. His hard work has led him to represent CEWD at local events including the 8th Annual Community Board 14 Youth Conference at Brooklyn College and a Senior Fair at Telecommunications High School. His attendance at these events has exceeded CEWD expectations as he continually displays confidence in what he’s learned as an Ambassador.
David looks forward to passing the TASC, completing all internship ours, graduating Project Rise, and enrolling at Kingsborough Community College. His ultimate goal is to study Physical Education and pursue his dreams of becoming a Physical Education teacher for special education students. CEWD Thanks him for all of his accomplishments as an Ambassador. Good luck on your upcoming TASC exam and all future endeavors!
