Candy is originally from Congo-Kinshasa. She is a wife and a mom of one. She
migrated to the US since 2015 and had to learn English because her first language is
French. She did not want to learn English by itself, so the Workforce advise her to
Enron to the I-BEST program (help desk training). With little English, it was hard to find
a Job in the US. One of her friends was working at a caregiver agency and encouraged
her to apply since she was already taking care of her niece and nephew who are
autistics. Candy has been a caregiver for 5 years. Candy is currently pursuing her
Information Technology (IT) program at Tacoma Community College. She is passionate
about helping children with special needs. “I understand what words can't explains”.
Candy is pleased to volunteer for Bella smile for Developmental Disabilities as a
secretary . Candy believes that families need resources to be able to take care of their
children with special needs.
