Ravena woman successfully overcomes fears to pursue dreams
Nicole Dorr of Ravena received an award for her work ethic. A supervisor had some very kind things to say about her.
It may not seem like a big deal, but you have no idea how far she’s come.
Dorr has anxiety and a learning disorder, which stopped her from pursuing dreams, and made her down on herself.
A couple of years ago, Dorr had a talk with herself. She realized she couldn’t let her disabilities get to her.
She had failed the first time she went to job coaching and training at Warren-Washington-Albany ARC, which supports training and employment for people with disabilities, but she went back.
She nailed an interview for a cleaning job, got hired and is now working for the state.
These great things might not have happened if she had not fought her fears. She spoke about it in a recent speech.
