|Austin Puim (right) plans on becoming a fire fighter|
The 19-year-old is in his first year in Humber College’s pre-service firefighter education and training program, hoping to work in a field that’s similar to playing on a team.
“I know it’s cliche, but I love helping people,” said Puim, who grew up in Cambridge, Ont., before enrolling at Humber. “Firefighting is a rare chance to work in a team-atmosphere and help out in the community.”
Puim was captain for his high school team’s Monsignor Doyle Mustangs, where his work ethic on and off the ice was an example of leadership and maturation.
