“It’s hard to work a full-time job, go to school, and take care of my kids. This program lets me work a few days a week at Samsung and take classes on other days. Samsung not only pays for my classes and books, but I get paid to work, I get benefits, and paid time off. This program allows me a lot of opportunities and experiences I couldn’t get anywhere else.”
“I was in the engineering program in High School, and my teacher decided that I should give it a shot, put my foot through the door, get an interview and see if I could start working there.”
