Stepping into My Power is delighted to interview the Founder of LLC - Ms. leslie Class-Hernandez. As a Hispanic, growing up in the Bronx, poor, her father overcame many challenges. He was an extremely positive and forward thinking person. As a young adult he became a proud Veteran, and later a successful entrepreneur before his untimely passing at age 39.
The unexpected death of her father initiated a series of life altering events for her. Lliving in transition - it was only a short while before she was landed in foster care and then became pregnant. She gave birth to her first child at age16 and second with special needs, when she was only 19 years old in an abusive relationship.
To provide for her children, she worked many jobs, completed her GED, and sought training employment opportunities. In 1994, at the age of 20, she became a Medical Assistant. The personal fulfillment that she has gained from sharing with her students, prompted her to establish Learning Curve Careers (LCC) in 2007.
Join us Wednesday 10-11pm EST to learn more of her story and the powerful program that she has launched to help others.
