It’s not about the things you fix. It taught me how to fix myself.
We met Courtland three years ago when he entered the TAAEF Apartment Professionals Program. After graduation, he started working as a maintenance technician in the apartment industry. This is his story of how he continues to find happiness in a career that grows with him.
I’m proud of myself because I know I’m in the line of what I want to do and the industry I want to grow in.
It’s been great. It’s been fantastic. I don’t have words to describe what it has done for my life…
I’m able to provide for my family financially, steadily. Also, everything I have learned, I’m going to be able to teach my son and my daughter how to do things.
It gave me hope. It gave me a future. It gave me a career.
