Meet Rebecca

Rebecca Winter 2019 Graduate

Rebecca is one the kindest, warmest women to have gone through our program. She always arrived early, and she made sure to give each staff-member a hug before going home. Rebecca has overcome so many obstacles, and she has grown from each triumph. We can’t wait to continue supporting her as a TWB alumni team member. Read more about Rebecca’s story below!
