Latifa comes from Morocco, where she was an esthetician. She also studied hairdressing and pastry-making. Today, she is a Renaissance participant, working as a sales clerk–sorter–cashier. "When I began looking for work, I had interviews, but no one gave me a chance, because of my veil or my English. I was advised to come see Renaissance. I'm happy with my work. I'm getting training, I'm being paid, and I'm in contact with people and clients, and that helps me improve my French. All of this is good for me, for my morale." Latifa would like to pursue her dream of working in a pastry shop, once she has finished the Renaissance program.
