FedEx Ramp Manager Shares Her Journey from Homelessness to Hope

Jun 6, 2016

On any given night, more than 500,000 Americans find themselves homeless. Many people take for granted having enough to eat, a place to stay and adequate clothing to wear. It isn’t until you are without these things that you can begin to understand the pain that comes with it.

Ametruis Knox, a FedEx Express ramp manager who has been with the company for nearly 20 years, can relate to the hardships of homelessness. She was once homeless growing up in Philadelphia.

“Mom, you are going to be bald”

May 2, 2016

From the time she was nine years old, Tatiana Ewing participated in dance competitions. Now, as a single mom of four children, she choreographs dances to teach her children.

Tatiana, or Tati, as her friends call her, is a FedEx Ground operations coordinator and a single mom of four. She devotes all of her time to being a positive role model for her children. This is one of the reasons why she decided to participate in “One Mission Buzz Off” and volunteer to shave her head in support of pediatric cancer patients.

“Mom you are going to be bald,” exclaimed her seven-year-old son, John. Tati explained that it would help raise awareness and money for the families who need it.

Not many women are willing to shave their head like Tati. Losing their hair would be hard for anyone, but Tati hopes her example will show girls that they can still be fierce without it.

How a Rookie Team from Quebec Took FIRST Robotics by Storm

How a Rookie Team from Quebec Took FIRST Robotics by Storm

The lovely little town of Trois Riveres, Quebec lies on the northwest banks of the famed St. Lawrence River, about halfway between Montreal and Quebec City in Canada. Although it was founded over 400 years ago, this city certainly doesn’t live in the past.

Trois Riveres is the home of Ultime’, FIRST Robotics Team 5528.

At 3:30pm on a cool overcast day at the Keranna School, classes have ended for the day. While the majority of the students rush out the doors to head home, about 20 students are excitedly chattering down the Keranna School’s science hallway. The hallway has been painted to represent global scientific achievements, and one of the doors on the right is labeled “Robotique FIRST”.

As darkness quickly creeps into the overcast sky, the Robotique FIRST room on the second floor of the school is shining like a beacon.
