Major Melissa Reyes came to the CAF after finishing her post- secondary schooling and beginning a civilian Government job. Although she found the work interesting, she realized that she would need further education and credentials to advance in her career. It was then that she was inspired by a television commercial that changed the course of her life. “[The commercial] said, ‘We do more by 6am…than you’ll do in a whole day!’ I really liked that challenge and the fact that I didn’t have to stagnate in my career. So, I went to the Recruiting Centre that week and here I am now!”
