Courtney was 17 years old when she had to start working to earn a living. So she tried many, many different jobs. She was a waitress, a barber, a waxer, a bread packager, a day care manager, a horticulturist, a landscaper and now she is a welder. At her new job, in Austin, USA, where I met her last September, Courtney is surrounded by thousands of sparks. But there’s also a spark inside her which ignites once in a while and gives her the impulse to move on whenever she feel she doest’t belong to a place. She had disappointments and depressions on the way, but for now she finally feels that she found the right job. Today she’s 26 and all her colleagues are men, but Courtney proves that a strong and bold woman can do any kind of job, defying all stereotypes.
