Where Are They Now? Tiki...
Tiki, a long-time Cooke student, graduated from Cooke’s SKILLS program in June of 2011. Since then, she has been leading a very active life.
Tiki's working at the Housing Works Bookstore and Café a few days of the week - a job she enjoys. Outside of work, she loves going to parks, concerts, amusement parks and to the arcade. But most of all, she loves shopping and examining the latest fashions - her dream job is to be a fashion designer. By attending weekly art classes at a local recreation center, she's able to practice her creative skills and work towards this goal.
In between her job and creative pursuits, Tiki makes time to keep up with old friends from school. One of her favorite aspects of being a Cooke student was having opportunity to socialize with her friends and teachers. She loves that through Cooke Center Alumni Association events, she can continue to keep up with friends and faculty. Tiki has been an active member of the group since graduation, and is looking forward to 2012-13 events.
Tiki’s message to everyone is, “to be successful, no matter what you do!” Thanks Tiki, glad to see that you’re putting your message into action - keep up the great work!
