After surviving an accident that left them unable to return to their former job, Samonte sought help from WorkBC one-to-one services. Immediately they felt that there was a team of supportive people on their side. Through the connections and services offered by WorkBC, Samonte was able to start an apprenticeship with an experienced goldsmith, obtain their jewelry certificate, and start their own small businesses selling a unique line of custom jewelry.
