Young Adult Success Story: David Hol
David Hol doesn’t think he is a success story. “The story is still being told” he said. David, 25, is the son of Cambodian immigrants who came to the United States in the late 1970’s. In foster care or under state supervision from the age of five until his eighteenth birthday, his early life was a struggle. “My last foster family was the best, but I dropped out of high school.”
David didn’t give up on himself after he dropped out. He started looking for work to support himself and help others. He found his first summer job through the GLWIB and Career Center of Lowell Summer Jobs Program. Working with younger kids at the Boys & Girls Club or cleaning up the city for the Parks and Recreation Department, he learned the meaning of hard work and earning a paycheck.
