After high school, Julius spent several years struggling to find the right job to fit his unique abilities. Julius joined the culinary training program at EmployAbility where the culinary training staff realized that Julius had a true talent for customer service.
Julius then joined the mobile catering team. Working with the public and helping them gave him the chance to really stand out. His sparkling personality and smile were a welcome sight – people loved working him and he enjoyed the opportunity to put his abilities to the test.
Now, he’s an award-winning Ambassador for Leopold’s Ice Cream.
In the past year, Julius has become a familiar face to the guests at Leopold’s Ice Cream on Broughton Street. Leopold’s General Manager, Brad Hooks, says that his infectious personality endeared him to guests, making him the perfect fit for the role of Ambassador. Having the right abilities for this role is crucial – as an Ambassador, Julius is often the first person a guest interacts with when they visit Leopold’s Ice Cream Shop.
“I just like to be around people. The customer always comes first!” Julius tells us.
Julius has a job he loves and it shows. His enthusiasm for his work has even won him the “Spirit of Tourism” Award from the Tourism Leadership Council. Julius’s dedication and passion for his work are what made his nomination stand above the rest!
Thanks to supporters just like you, Julius was able to get the skills he needed to turn his abilities into a career. Thank you for helping to build a community where everyone has the chance to move from training to triumph.
