What are you doing today?

I’m working here. Selling hotdogs, waters, gatorades.

How long have you been doing this?

1 week. I’ve been in this country for 6 months.

What time did you wake up this morning?

I woke up at 8am. Then I took the subway here. I clean my stand, wipe it down and then my boss brings it here. I’ve been here one week, my boss was on this corner for four years.

Do you enjoy this?

I enjoy having a job. In this country people are just lucky to have a job. So I’m happy that I have this. Before, when I didn’t have a job, my head was all over the place. But now I’m focused.
