There’s a cost to killing your soul with Shelli Varela

Shelli Varela

Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:

For many years, women were perceived as the weaker sex, unable to perform activities or carry out roles in which men were the gender determined to fulfill them, taking them to prove themselves, their courage, and strength. Women like today's guest Shelli Varela didn't have the idea that their dreams will open the door for many women in the future.
After following her dreams to become a firefighter and failing the first test, Shelli continued fighting until she reached it, leading her to become the first female firefighter in Canada, and today you will hear her story.
Don't miss this episode! I promise that you will leave with a soul, spirit, and heart full of inspiration.
Shelli Varela proudly became the first female firefighter with the Mississauga Fire and Emergency Services in 1994, and most recently, the first female Fire Captain.
She is a Story Alchemist, Fire Captain, 2x TedX Speaker, Author, Host of the Forbes featured podcast “The YES Effect" Show, Champion for the Underdog and over the years, Shelli has used her own experiences to serve as an example that all things are possible.
