Emily works at the Self Advocacy Federation, where she has been since October 2014. She is polite, social, and fantastic at administrative work, which she is passionate about. She makes meeting agendas, monthly calendars, does photocopying, attends meetings, and provides a variety of office support.
She says her work is immensely rewarding.
“What I love most about working is doing and having a job that I have always wanted and that is being an administrative assistant,” she says. “Having a job is important to me because it gives me the security of knowing that I can support myself.”
Her long-term goal is to move out on her own.
