My name is Desiree Hill.

I am in the 12th grade currently attending the Randolph Career Academy, in the Advanced Electronics program.

This program helped me accomplish a lot. I have been on important trips. Such as going to Washington D.C and Harrisburg to meet state representatives, and congressional representatives.

I have had plenty of opportunities to get jobs and meet with important people. Recently, I went on a trip to the Sugar House Casino, with a few classmates and I went through a panel process. I worked hard to show the judges my determination and willingness to dedicate myself. Through the grace of God, I was hired. I am currently in the internship program at the Sugar House Casino where I will be working on the slot machines. This is what happens when you work hard and meet the right people.
