Emily Assunção builds skills with LEGO
Off the clock: Your Stories
With more than 13,000 employees, the TTC is full of interesting people with great stories to tell. Off the clock: Your Stories is a new video series celebrating employees who are also involved in the community, have an inspiring story, or just have an interesting passion or hobby that they’d like to share.
Emily Assunção is a professional engineer and Closures and Diversions Manager for Subway Transportation. She loves working with the various groups that co-ordinate service during subway closures and disruptions. When she’s not at work, Emily volunteers at an after-school program that promotes STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. She noticed her local elementary school in Toronto didn’t have one, so she approached teachers with the idea for a First LEGO League – and now she inspires kids to learn by building their own robots.
Watch Emily’s story on the TTC TV screens across the workplace, at TTCasts on the TTC intranet (internal website) or from The Coupler’s Your Stories link above each page.
