Today is the last day at Grand Rapids Christian High School for Grace and Lily, and we’re so proud of them and can’t wait to see where God takes them in the future. Grace and Lily began working at New 2 You 1.5 and 2 years ago, respectively, both as Winterim students earning money for their school trips.
Grace and Lily most love cashiering, but they also enjoy hanging up clothes, sorting housewares, interacting with customers and volunteers, and learning more about their co-workers each day. Additionally, they both greatly enjoy using their Spanish skills to serve Spanish-speaking customers when they shop.
These girls have very exciting plans for the future! Grace will go to Hope College and study Studio Art with a minor in Spanish and possibly also earn a degree in Psychology or Education. Despite being away for school, she hopes to work at New 2 You over breaks to stay connected with the loving community. Lily plans to go to Calvin University, where she will be studying Biology with a minor in Spanish on the pre-med track. She’s very excited to continue working at New 2 You into her college years.
Being a student at GRCHS and a staff member at New 2 You has given them such a unique and valuable experience. Lily and Grace cherish the community where loving people of all ages come together and serve. “I’ve found a lot of good things and a lot of good people at New 2 You,” Lily emphasized. Grace has appreciated how working at New 2 You has expanded the Grand Rapids Christian network that she grew up in, noting how fun it is to be a cashier for teachers and friends. “There’s always someone new to talk to,” she commented.
“I’ve found a lot of good things and a lot of good people at New 2 You,”
These young women have such bright futures ahead, and we couldn’t be more proud of them. Thank you, Grace and Lily, for your consistent kindness and hard work!
