"I have always dreamed of starting my own business, but for my first ten years in America, it was never a possibility. When I started at Vickery Trading, everything changed. I had worked many jobs in the United States, but they never taught me what I really needed to know. Vickery Trading teaches women everything. How to be a good employee, how to speak and read English and how to live in America. They even helped me make my dream come true and start my own business. I want everyone to know how great this company is and how much they help refugee women."

"When I graduated from Vickery Trading, I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find a job and I would sit at home alone like before. But you didn’t let that happen. You used your network to get me an interview at one of the top men’s shops in Dallas. Now I’m a full-time seamstress with great pay and benefits and I can help my family more than I ever have. Thank you for helping me to find this opportunity. I wouldn’t have been able to find such a good job without your assistance."
