“Project Lightbulb was definitely a growing experience for me. Coming into the job, I thought this would be simple and all I would have to do is install light bulbs. But no, Project Lightbulb was much more than that. Each day began with a meeting which provided inspiring words that helped to get through the day. One lesson I took from these meetings is that there isn’t much to gain going the shortcut route in completing tasks; instead, Project Lightbulb challenged me to put my all in the work that I do. I applied this lesson as we entered into each resident’s home, and I would see the results each time we were about to leave the home that we serviced. The resident would always be so grateful for quality of work that was provided, which made me feel good about what I did. I plan to use all the skills I learned in Project Lightbulb in future jobs and in my future career.”
