My Work

Hey guys! I wanted to talk about my work this time.

I have always wanted to get a job while I am in America. I remember getting an internship at an insurance company called "Massmutual" when I was in high school, however I was later revoked during my document process by Homeland Security because F-1 students are able to work only when you go to college. :(

When I came to the U, I wanted to work at a place that works with numbers and University Dining Service (UDS) seemed like something that many people around me have easily reached out for to get a job so I applied as a Cashier at a Marketplace in Coffman Building. I love where I work and I feel like by now I got a real good hang of how things work. I begin to feel that I am always confident with picking up new things because I can easily adapt in new environment!

Do not forget however, it is important to balance your work and academic work in your life because I have seen a lot of people who later decided to quit. It is wise not to overload yourself.
