“Finding myself working two jobs and passing the exam that haunted me for so long, the big “thank you” from Squaremouth was a nice reminder that hard work DOES pay off!”

My Story

A little over a year ago, I left everything I knew and moved to Florida to find a new me. I started working at The Avenue and it soon became my second home.
Not knowing the intensity of full time school, I began attending Massage Therapy classes. I found instant gratification by helping others in a way I’d never dreamed of. This program helped me discover how strong I actually was. On top of moving across the country there were many long nights of studying and working, many breakdowns, tears and laughter. Seven months later, I graduated.
Stephen and The Avenue staff have been nothing but accommodating through last minute schedule changes and my many emotions. The Avenue is somewhere I can get away, see familiar faces and reassure myself of the amazing people that have came into my life this year. I could not ask for a better group of people to work with as they were my first friends in Florida.
Finding myself working two jobs and passing the exam that haunted me for so long, the big “thank you” from Squaremouth was a nice reminder that hard work DOES pay off! It will help me finish the process in getting my massage license and paying student loans so I can begin my new career doing what I love.
Thank you Squaremouth! I will never forget your generosity!
