A Transition Academy success story: Guerline Novembre
The Transition Academy, GO Haiti’s two-year discipleship and vocational-technical training program, is designed to help young adults make a successful transition into adulthood. Guerline Novembre, a 20-year-old young woman from Gonaives, Haiti, is one of the many students enrolled in the academy.
Guerline is an exceptional student in her second year of the academy’s sewing program. Similar to her life, Guerline’s time at the academy and story to success wasn’t easy. Her journey was filled with many lessons and growth. Committing to the academy is harder than it seems.
After many counseling sessions, she agreed to repeat classes knowing she would benefit from personalized assistance from the staff and the school psychologist. Due to her devotion and commitment to her studies and behavioral change, she is now one of the top students at the Transition Academy and has been featured as the student of the month numerous times. Her intelligence partnered with her work ethic, allowed her to successfully pass her exams and catch up to the second-year students.
Her comeback means she will graduate this August and Guerline is thrilled.
“I feel happy for the opportunity to graduate. The graduation is a reward for my hard work. I feel very proud of myself for this accomplishment. It would be a shame and a blow to see my classmates graduate without me. This big accomplishment will boost me throughout my lifetime to not accept failure but to work hard to turn it into success,” said Guerline.
Many students are learning from Guerline’s experience and look up to her as a role model. She is a reminder of how hard work and positive intervention can change the course of your future. We are so proud of her success and excited to see what else she will accomplish with God’s guidance.
The Global Orphan Project family will celebrate the GO Transition Academy’s 2019 graduating class on August 10, 2019. Thank you to those that have invested in their future!
