Malik’s Story

Prior to joining the RTH program, I was doing what I had been doing since the age of fourteen--working. I've worked in many industries: restaurants, hotels, as a delivery driver, you name it. After seven years of working in fields that didn't make me happy or pay the bills, I finally decided it was time for me to start working towards a career.

I had always dreamed of working in an industry that would make my mother proud; she is the reason I've worked so hard. I’ll never forget being a kid and watching my mom overcome unimaginable adversity, all by herself. I graduated from the Road to Hire coding fellowship in 2017 and am now an Associate Engineer at Red Ventures. Now I am finally in a position where I can give my mother the support she’s always given me.
