"It was always my dream to become a firefighter so that I could save lives and give back to my community. Despite my motivation and fortitude, the inability to pay for school prevented me from reaching my goals for a long time. One day, I decided to connect with CareerSource Broward and, to my surprise, I found out that they offered scholarships to help pay for career training. With their assistance and support, I was able to enroll in the fire academy and complete the required certifications. Thanks to their dedicated staff, my dream has come true and now I’m a certified firefighter."
