“I’m from Puebla, Mexico – I’ve been here in New York for a long time and have always worked as a dishwasher. When I arrived I didn’t know what to expect, I thought it was going to be hard to get any job as I don’t know how to read or write. I found that restaurant kitchens are places full of opportunities and there are no discriminations. From someone like me to people seeing second chances at life, and people from all around the world. It doesn’t matter what language you speak, we’re all able to understand each other and get along while in the kitchen!”
