This is me before I even contemplated working in the cannabis industry. ——————————————————————————
I was working at a school for Developmentally Disabled youths as a Paraprofessional. I was there for 3 years before making the extremely difficult decision to leave that field of work entirely. For my own safety, sanity, and health I looked for a job I could do that would be less stressful on my mind and my body, while still helping people. So I made the jump, invested in my support badge and landed my first budtending job within a week. ——————————————————————————
The school changed my life in all the best ways. I made life long best friends that are really more like family. I fell in love for the first time in my life with a man I am so happy to still call mine. I learned patience and compassion that one can only learn in that environment. I developed a better work ethic and became a better person. I may have left, but that school and that family will always hold one of the biggest places in my heart. It/They are a part of me forever and I am thankful for that.
