“I’m from Peru, but I came to the US around 5 years ago and got my job as a dishwasher here only a few months ago; this is actually my first ever kitchen job. I’ve had other kinds of jobs but I think I feel more comfortable here, working under the A/C with good food and a good sense of humor to go around, it’s what grabs me! More than anything I feel I’m here learning something valuable; I truly hope that over time I’m able to work my way up the ranks to be on the line.”
