“NPower saved my life in many ways….and also helped me land an internship and build relationships that changed my life.”

Searching for a way to provide for herself and her newborn son, she discovered NPower through a community resource center. The course of her life changed forever. Through support from NPower coupled with her grit, determination, and perseverance, Yahaira has now launched a career in tech, advanced in her career, continues to give back to her community in various ways, and most importantly is building a bright and exciting future not only for herself but also for her son.
