From Work Study Participant to Development Leader

Nevresa was born and raised in Srebrenica, Bosnia where her father fought in the Bosnian Civil War.

Today, she is a single mom and has overcome incredible adversity to not only provide for her daughter but to also complete her Associate of Arts Degree and an Associate of Applied Science in Business Administration. Nevresa came to the Center for Sharing’s work training program through Goodwill, graduated from that program and is now the Center for Sharing’s Administrative Assistant.
