I have been at Taller de José for several months already and I am enjoying every moment. I love the chance to be able to provide guidance to my clients. Taller has showed me all the wonders it is to take on this mission of accompaniment. I have dealt with many wonderful clients and I am happy to be able to assist them. They are so kind and are very appreciative about what we do and understand some challenges we might face during these times.
I know that my time at Taller de José has been a great experience for me. Knowing that in a couple of months I will be moving on is really sad for me because I have been enjoying my time here with the staff and clients. They have all made a tremendous impact in what working with social services is really like. Right now, I am just living in the moment and enjoying everything that I am doing here.
I had one client, who needed help with social security benefits, and she was talking about not having anyone by her to support her. In that moment, I knew that I was there to support her in the best way that I can. It makes me very sad to think that people in the world think they are alone in these challenging situations, but they are not alone. Taller de José has taught me about companionship and this proves that no one is ever alone. There will always be that support here at Taller de Jose. As I mentioned before, I am living in the moment and that moment is being able to tackle these barriers together.
