How long have you worked for LiveBeyond?
Since 2013.

What is your job at LiveBeyond?
I make jewelry and clean the medical clinic. Before working here, I did not have a job. My brother, Joseph, translates and helped me get this job.

What is your favorite part about working for LiveBeyond?
I love church. I was baptized in September 2016. There was nothing serious going on in the way I was living, and when the Vanderpools talked to me, I chose to take God's way.

How has your job transformed your life?
My job gives me dignity. The father of my two children doesn't help provide for my family. I can now pay for my kids' school and feed my children because of my job at LiveBeyon. I also have more confidence in myself—I know I'm talented at making jewelry.

Anything else that you'd like to share?
I love my job and the Vanderpool family. They do beautiful things and have helped a lot of people.
