Meet Mimi, A Featured Speaker at our May 18 Steps to Success Event

Join the Daily Work community as our Steps to Success benefit goes virtual. This year we are honoring our collective strength and resiliency with inspiring narratives and entertainment. It’s a program packed with what you love about our in-person events... meaningful connections, impactful stories, and interesting speakers, like Mimi.

My name is Mimi and I am a case management intern here at Daily Work. I'm also a second generation immigrant. When I was growing up, I felt a lot of the pressures and the otherness that a non-white person in America experiences. It was, you know, it was my life.

"And then as I was finding a job, I realized that I didn't have a lot of the tools and I didn't have a lot of the resources that all of my other peers did because their families have been in America for generations. And for me, my family didn't really have a network. They didn't have the same amount of knowledge or skills that people need when it comes to finding a job."

"So me and my family... we had to start from scratch."
