Khadijah started her brush with the criminal justice system by hanging out and joyriding with her friends. Mixing with the wrong crowd and experimenting with drugs ultimately led Khadijah to incarceration which forced her to be away from her loving family. As a mother, Khadijah knew she did not want to miss another moment with her children, so she chose to enroll in Ready4Work-
Hillsborough where she learned various life skills in career development. She also benefited from public transportation passes and Food for Life Pantry assistance provided by the program until her dream job opportunity came knocking.
Khadijah is now working full time at the Public Defender’s Office where she is learning about the law and prosecution process. Striving towards her future goals, Khadijah recently moved into her new apartment and is now faced with other big decisions like what color furniture she should purchase.
