Meet an Apprentice

My name is Cindy and I’m not from here I’m from Windsor, Ontario. I’ve been here for almost 2 years and I came here to change my life and career. I didn’t have a clue on what I wanted to do so through meeting people and talking with them a friend of mine who is an insulator thought I would be good in the trades! My dad was a carpenter and I already knew a few things. I’ve been an insulator now for almost a year and a half, 2nd year first half! I really enjoy the work, and the atmosphere of the construction sites I also like the different challenges it provides. I didn’t realize what all goes into insulating or why things need to be insulated. I also didn’t realize this is a red seal trade! I started school on January 3rd for level 1, my first year! I still cant believe I’m in a classroom, it’s been over 30 plus years! I’m going to take this as far as I can go which means getting my red seal and becoming a journey person. I want to learn how to insulate with all the materials the trade has to offer, this way I can become a good mentor for the younger generation. I’m 51 years old and I want other people to know that no matter how old you are or what obstacles are in your way if you put your mind to it you can achieve anything!
