Helen Keller Services for the BlindSuccess Story

Iliana Mejia

Iliana Mejia shares her positive experience and what she learned during Helen Keller Career Exploration Week.

Hi! my name is Iliana Mejia, and this year, and for the past 3 years, I’ve been going to Helen Keller Career Exploration Week. This year, I went under the supervision of Yokasta Urena. We went on some trips, and my two favorites would have to be: The Whitney Museum of American Art, and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. I think these two were my favorites, because they really opened my eyes up to new job opportunities that I had never considered, such as a composer at a radio station, which I never even thought was a thing, and working at a museum, which I had never, ever ever considered. I would definitely recommend this program! I think it’s a good way to open up your eyes to new job opportunities and things you would have never considered, ever doing in your future. I hope that someday, you could try it out for yourself, and see how great this experience is! [End of Transcript]
