Kidspiration Cool Jobs Video: Dany Cotton, Firefighter

Dany Cotton has a dream job - firefighter! As one of the only female members of the London Fire Brigade, Dany has both lived a dream and overcome the many challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated workplace, and her story is sure to inspire your students to think differently about the grit and persistence it takes to keep pushing on when the odds are against you. 13-year-old Jodie from the Kidspiration team talks to Dany about her inspiring story, challenges, and triumphs in this candid and inspirational video.

This video can be used as part of a jobs and careers unit, as a supplemental resource for career counseling, or as a supplement for an arts, media, or technology curriculum. It can also be used to support a career and technical education track for middle school students.
