and yet 2.6 million New Yorkers are not prepared to meet this demand.

Meet Fatima Chebchoub

2016 Mentee, PwC Site

Fatima emigrated from Africa five years ago with the hopes of going to college and creating a better life for herself. Despite arriving alone, facing an entirely different culture, and speaking no English, Fatima persevered, and was able to attend CUNY. In her final semester Fatima joined StreetWise.

In addition to gaining professional networking experience, improving her confidence with public speaking and enhancing her resume and cover letter, Fatima also took part in StreetWise's mock interviewing event - the day before a real interview.

Receiving interviewer feedback and gaining experience in an interview setting was crucial in landing her a job as an Applications Programmer at Kentucky Climate Center a mere month after graduation.
