Cassandra Avatar
H-5 Construction
When Cassandra David arrived at the Alaska Job Corps Center in 2019, she was looking for a way to make a stable income and set herself up for independence. Cassandra did not know she would soon end up as a leader in the Construction training program, a typically male-dominated industry. She never let being one of the only women in the shop stop her. Instead, she let it motivate her. Cassandra committed to working that much harder to prove her worth. She gave it her all, and it paid off.
