Manuela Hincapie Knows How to Use a Chainsaw, Watch Out!
Our very own Manuela Hincapie has gone on an adventure to Mississippi where she is now working as an AmeriCorps member! She and her team mates are dedicating their time to serving the public.
Recently, Manuela applied and was chosen to be a part of the Fire Training Team, otherwise known as Delta 4. Manuela has carried a 45 pound vest for 3 miles, stopped wildfires, chopped up logs with a chainsaw, is being trained by real firefighters, and is generally just being a bad-ass lady!
Manuela recently graduated from Year Up, a one-year intensive training program that prepares people for professional jobs at companies around Providence. Following her gut-instincts, Manuela decided to take a leap and go somewhere new and exciting after she finished Year Up. It looks like her decisions and hard work are paying off! Go Manuela!!!!!!
