This is the reason why the work we do at #DFSBUFFALO is so important.

#Repost

I was recently helped for a internship I had for college as a teacher's assistant. I was really excited for the position, but soon realized that I had nothing to wear for the position. I felt discouraged when I thought how horrible my first impression would be.

While I was freaking out a teacher told me about Dress For Success and that they might be able to help.

When I went Michelle Barron was really nice and worked with my school schedule. She spent the time making sure all the clothes she picked fit me and she made sure they fit the position perfectly. When wearing the clothes I felt comfortable, confident and like I belonged in this teaching position.

What's really great is that as I was performing tasks for my boss a lot of other faculty staff and other administrators that work at the college kept thinking I was a new hire teacher. I've never be happier with myself professionally than I have been waking up and knowing I have something to wear. Thank you Dress For Success for giving me the confidence to preform my tasks everyday.

Thank You,
