In Venezuela, I had my own construction company. When I arrived in the USA, I had to start over, and I began to work in supermarkets and restaurants.

What I like about the United States is that even though there is more compromise in our work, people respect the service industry more than in Latin America.

I enjoy this job because I am close to food, and the new things I am learning can apply to my daily life, such as cooking for myself and my family.
