"I was born in Fort McMurray, I never actually left. I was in the Catholic school system from kindergarten right up to grade twelve and then I got started with the Bachelor of Education through Keyano College it's a collaborative program through the U of A. It was really nice for me to get to live at home and not have a lot of student loans. I was also able to work as a lifeguard part time which really helped.
I love the opportunity Fort McMurray offers. I know that if I wasn't living in Fort McMurray I probably wouldn't have gotten this job right away. Fort McMurray definitely offers opportunity to lots of us.
This is home for me, it's definitely what you make of it. The people are what I like most about Fort McMurray. I’ve grown up here so I know a lot of people in the community.
I graduated in May, I wasn't even really looking for jobs yet then all of a sudden I got the call I got a job with the Fort McMurray Catholic School District."
