Success Story

Tanisha McGraw

Tanisha McGraw winner for Outstanding Strategic Use. Tanisha was caught in a cycle of temp jobs, some with overnight hours causing her to leave her teenage son home alone all night; something had to change! She learned about Twin Cities RISE and saw that it had what she wanted – a better life, a better future. She immediately enrolled in classes and was passing every one of them in the 95 percentile! Tanisha shakes her head,

“Then my car broke down and it was clear that I would have to leave TCR classes and go back to temping so I could get my car working again. But MicroGrants allowed me to fix my car, finish my classes and I’ve landed a great job where I’m required to have a reliable car to transport and visit clients!“
