Ferran Capell is just another worker of Soluciones Reunidas. His responsibilities are similar to those of other colleagues in the Barcelona office: administrative tasks, ordering and filing invoices, support Human Resources, etc. His hobbies are similar to those of other 25 year olds: he plays tennis, he studies French, he sings in a choir, he goes out with his friends … But his life is different from most. She has been living in a wheelchair since she suffered an accident in 2013, and she does not want to talk. "I always look forward," he always says with a smile.ï»¿
Soon you will fulfill your first year in Soluciones Reunidas. What has become of you?
The truth is that I feel valued and try to do my job as well as I know. For me it means to get up with desire, to have an occupation, to feel useful. Someone in a wheelchair does not have that much chance of finding a job. I have been given an opportunity and I hope to take advantage of it.
How did you get to the company?
My family knew the Ferreón family and they told me that they were looking for administrative support. I did not hesitate for a moment. The first day I felt that I was coming to a serious company … all very busy … concentrated … Now I know everyone and I am happy. There is a very good atmosphere. I feel respected and I do too.
Already had experience?
I had only worked at a McDonalds and as a monitor. I started Political Science to understand how the world of politics worked. But in third I left because I believed that I had already fulfilled my expectations and wanted to seek new knowledge outside. I made a break. Although in the future I would like to finish the race.
How is your day?
I arrive at the offices of Soluciones Reunidas at 10am. I move in a motorized chair, which makes it much easier for me to travel. At noon I go home to eat and in the afternoon, two days I go to play tennis. Doing sport with people like you makes you do a lot of pineapple. I have a good time and besides, it is good for health! Two days a week I also study French. And on Thursdays I sing in a choir of the Official School of Languages. We are preparing Amazing Grace style gospel.
And how do you see your future?
With a normal life, simple, without great aspirations … but always trying to improve. I always try to look forward: working, improving, progressing. My motto is "Never change. Only for the better. " I would like to be more autonomous, emancipate myself, find someone … I do not ask anything of the other world, right ?. I would also like to stay in Soluciones Reunidas for a long time. If I get the chance, of course.ï»¿
