Leather stands out right now and it should stay a trend for 2013, so it is the perfect investment!  It comes in many colors, but black is still dominant.  Here in the Northwest, a black leather coat is so practical for rainy days that it makes it an ideal staple.  Maybe that is why leather is Seattle Metropolitan’s style editor Laura Cassidy’s favorite texture?  If you need inspiration, check out some of fall’s best looks from Seattle Met, then stop by the Glitter Sale to pick up one of these great pieces!

Our Mission at Work: Meet Nutjaree

 
by Katherine Boury, Seattle Goodwill
October 3, 2012
 

For 20 years, Nutjaree worked as a cook in a well-known Thai restaurant owned by her brother in-law in the White Center area.  When her brother-in-law got sick and passed away, the restaurant was forced to close.  So in 2010, she started looking for work and came into the Burien Goodwill to apply for a job.

Nutjaree

Nutjaree's English skills were not strong enough for her to work in a retail setting, but a store employee told her she could build her skills by taking some English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes at the Burien Job Training and Education center.

In the past two years, Nutjaree has taken ESOL, math and computer classes.  “This is a really good program with very good teachers,” Nutjaree said.  “In Thailand, I was only able to take reading and writing, but not math.  Now I love to study.  The program is very good for me.”

“Nutjaree’s confidence has greatly increased since she has been coming here,” said Elizabeth Acorda, the site manager for the Burien Job Training and Education Center.  “Now she is helping other students in the class.”

Nutjaree plans to continue improving her skills at the Burien Job Training and Education Center and would like to open another restaurant in the future.
