BAKERY STORY OF HOPE
My name is Lythin, I’m 22 years old and from Zimbabwe. I grew up in Capricorn Community from the age of 10 years old. The way you view your community is up to you, it can either tear you upside down or bring the best out of you. I used to work opposite The Sozo Foundation at the local car wash and always saw students coming in and out. After speaking to one of the students and being told about the courses, I thought I’m going to try it out and decided to do the Baking and Barista training. I experienced Sozo to be a loving place, you can go to Sozo in a bad mood but as soon as you walk through the gate your whole mood changes. Sozo has prepared me to be a very good Barista, I am able to work under pressure. They taught me to work neatly and to always be friendly to customers. I feel so confident in my ability that I can work anywhere and be able to do a good job.
After completing my training at Sozo I was applying for different jobs but to my surprise, I got a call from Sozo to come to this Café for an interview, and I got the job!
I want to make a positive change in my community and tell more people about Sozo. One day when I make it, I want to sponsor Sozo. Sozo turns lives around and makes a positive impact on communities’ lives. My motivation for the youth is to always pay it forward and not to look back!
