Success Stories

Joyce

As a woman of color entering IT, a field that despite industry-wide best efforts for inclusion, only hires women at a 10% rate and people of color at 2% rate, Joyce R. found an opportunity to gain an advantage against odds. Joyce is a graduate of Cal State University, Dominguez Hills, from which she was able to obtain her degree thanks to a scholarship program called STEM Advantage. In a feat of effective partnership in education and employment opportunities in technology, the scholarship was able to connect Joyce to a partner program, OpenTech. At age 42, Joyce completed a one-year Registered Apprenticeship with Sony Corporation through the OpenTech program, and was hired with Sony as a Project Analyst at a salary over six figures.

Kanisha has always been an exceptionally motivated young-woman, driven by the work-ethic and mentorship her father provided her from a young age. Kanisha’s father would take her to civic events, including trips to City Hall, LAPD events and medical departments just to help her get a feel for her career interests. Kanisha had always been invested in supporting and working in her own community. All she needed was to find the opportunities that would transform her aspirations into her proud accomplishments.

Born and raised in Argentina, Juan Battini (24) immigrated with his parents to Los Angeles in 2001. His parents left Argentina with hopes of economic prosperity and greater educational opportunities for their only child.

The eight years Juan would spend at Foshay would direct the trajectory of his life.  Looking back on his Foshay experience, Juan credits two influential figures for giving him the support and knowledge necessary for his success; a guidance counselor (Mr. Sippo) and his computer science-technology academy teacher (Ms. Leslie Aaronson).
