Nadia's Story: Flipping burgers and ringing up tills
At the end of year 11, I decided it was time I found myself some casual work. The local fish and chip shop was advertising, so I sent in my resume.
The owner called me in for what I thought was the interview, but it turned out I had the job!
I spent the whole summer working behind the cash register, on the grills and cleaning out the back. I continued working there for another three years while I studied.
Whilst I don't miss working in hospitality, I have fond memories of my time there, the customers I served and the staff I worked with - I certainly learnt a lot.
