Alex Dilbeck has been working with Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities this summer and just received his first paycheck EVER!
His mom sent his SSA, Michaela a picture of him opening the check. The excitement and happiness on his face is priceless!
Alex is interested in animation and wants to eventually have a career in creating 3D animation. He now plans to start saving his checks to help pay for a laptop that allows him to do the 3D animation.
Here are some of the words his mom shared with Michaela about how excited they are! "He got his first paycheck today and he was exhilarated and had difficulty processing his thoughts and emotions. He was so happy! I hadn't seen him that happy in a long time. It was so nice. And when I talked with him and he realized that this laptop was not a dream but a possibility for him he was even more so. What a wonderful thing, helping him achieve his dreams."
