“I have battled a lifetime of severe depression and self-esteem issues. Three years ago, I tried to take my life and ended up in the ICU. From that day forward, I have fought for my life. I received a diploma in finance and am ready to start the next season of my life. I was blessed to have been referred to Uncommon Threads by one of my teachers. I was unemployed while in school so getting professional clothing was not a possibility for me.
Uncommon Threads was able to provide me with stunning clothing, shoes, purse and jewelry to take on the banking world. I have never felt so beautiful and strong. Walking into the branch in a well put together outfit makes me feel like I can conquer the day. I stand taller with pride in myself each day now, and Uncommon Threads is a huge part of that. Without them I wouldn't have been able to have these clothes. I truly owe my success in these past few months to them. Not just the clothing but the support and love from the lovely ladies there has truly changed me.”
