Tossapop Strickland developed an early interest in soldering. “I began soldering when I was a kid in Thailand with my uncle’s soldering iron. In 2013, he and his family relocated to the U.S. to be near family and better schools.
Adjusting to life in America was not easy. Strickland worked hard to maintain his grades while learning a completely new culture. After graduating from high school, a friend told him about Goodwill’s Electronics Assembly and Soldering program. “Goodwill helped with my communication skills for interviews,” he says. “I learned how to sell myself when applying for jobs.” Strickland got the chance to put his skills to work as an electronic assembler. Tossapop has distinguished himself as a top performer at his work site.
