Alliah is Flying High at Sky Chef


Alliah came to ICAN Living and Learning Center with the dream of finding a career and working with a stable company. At that time, she was living in a hotel room with little prospects to change her situation. ICAN worked closely with Alliah, helping her with searching for the right job that fit her skills and many talents. Within just a few months, ICAN was able to find her a job at Sky Chef, one of the largest providers of airline catering and in-flight services, based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. At Sky Chef, Alliah assembles food trays for the airlines. Alliah’s dynamic personality, infectious smile and can-do attitude connects with people and recently, she has taken on other responsibilities including assisting the training of new employees. Her manager is ecstatic and says, “Alliah is doing fantastic!” Recently, Alliah has gotten a raise and is moving into a one bedroom apartment in a gated community with her boyfriend. She is a super star and is looking forward to a bright future.

Samantha Keeps Going Despite Spina Bifida

ICANFL Samantha

We are proud to announce that ICAN has yet another triumph. Samantha, an amazing and confident person, who has been suffering from Spina Bifida, is now working at a movie theater in Plantation selling tickets and as a customer service representative. Samantha walks with great difficulty but that does not keep her from working. She proudly announces, “I love my job. I feel good when I am asked questions and I can answer them even though I have only been here a few months.” What makes her success so worth celebrating is that Samantha overcomes her obstacles with such determination that its effects are contagious to others at her work. Although she is bound to a wheelchair for much of the time, but she told her mother, “Please put my wheelchair in the corner and only give it to me if I really need it.” Samantha is enjoying her success at her job and looking forward to other opportunities to conquer. This is another example of how your spirit can soar, despite setbacks in life.
