RISE Profile: Rkia Elarif

"I wanted to apply to RISE because needed something to do while I take some time off of school."

Twenty-one-year-old Rkia Elarif is a usually a student at Ibn Zohr University. RISE is helping the Lkahssas native decide where she wants to go next.

"Bringing in my CV and resume has been the most helpful session so far. I got great feedback on what to improve so I can be a good job candidate. I am learning professional skills and meeting motivated people who push me to pursue my goals."
