Ronn works as a Consumer Satisfaction Team Specialist at HopeWorx and is a full-time student at Montgomery County Community College (MCCC) where he was recently named to the Dean’s List.
Ronn spent much of his youth feeling alone and defeated. Home was chaotic and he felt like his life was going nowhere. He felt depressed and lacked self-confidence. When he reached adulthood, Ronn began taking classes at MCCC. He then made another important decision, deciding that it was time for him to grow up and live on his own. That was a turning point in his life and his recovery.
Ronn realized that it was important to accept help in achieving his goals. He worked hard to overcome his resistance to getting help—realizing that he couldn’t get well on his own—and allowed others to support his journey.
Lack of self-confidence is no longer a driving force in Ronn’s life. He loves being creative and sharing his creativity and joy with others—whether it’s making them laugh or styling them. His strength and faith led him to seize opportunities open to him, and he is now driven by the goal of offering the same hope and support to others. He is well on his way to achieving his dreams, through his work at HopeWorx and pursuit of a degree in social work.
Ronn is the evidence of how an example can lead.
