Tooba's Inspiring Transformation from a Shy Student to a Confident Barista
10 July 2023

If you've ever been to eat X dignity cafe (one of our Transformational Enterprise), you've probably met Tooba, either taking your orders or brewing coffee behind the counter!

But believe it or not, Tooba wasn't always this confident. Back in her student days, she was shy and would avoid making eye contact. She would find solace in the corner of the classroom, away from the spotlight.

However, everything changed when Tooba joined eat X dignity as an intern through our Skills Training and Employability Program (STEP). During her two years working there, not only did she acquire valuable F&B and customer service skills, but she also blossomed into a confident individual who could handle any customer with ease!

It was a full circle moment for Tooba - from a timid student to a dedicated barista, serving the community with passion.

Tooba even had the chance to teach her former teacher how to make a fantastic cup of coffee!

“I used to be your teacher, and now you're teaching me!” exclaimed her teacher, beaming with pride, witnessing this beautiful cycle of growth and transformation.

Tooba’s story is a testament to the power of our transformative education. Sponsor a child today and be a part of their journey. Together, we can create a world where every child has the opportunity to flourish.
