Fredy Rojas is an example of how perseverance, hope, and support can make any dream possible. Growing up in Colombia, Fredy knew that in order to make it in America, he would have to work hard and take jobs that might not align with his passion for computers. The first step in his long journey to a better life was living with his aunt and uncle in Fort Lauderdale, where he began learning English. He took a job in construction and it helped him learn the language.
Fifteen years ago, Fredy started working in the Repair Shop. As a reliable worker who is always eager to learn, he was promoted to Parts, then worked in Export. His long-term goal of working in information technology persisted, though, and Fredy was adamant that nothing distracted from his study time. After earning a position as a technician, he approached his manager about moving to City Furniture’s infrastructure team. His hard work and unfaltering discipline were rewarded when he was transferred to do the work he so loves. Fredy is now an Infrastructure and Support Supervisor for the technical support team.
