I have made a goal to help my mom cook dinner at least once a week so that I know how to make meals when I am out on my own. I often find myself irritated when my mom asks me to clean my room. However, I’ve recently realized she just wants me to have the habit of picking up after myself when I am on my own. Even though sometimes it is hard, I am very thankful for the way my parents have raised me because I have learned how to be
Rizzo’s Malabar Inn is a family-owned restaurant located in Crabtree, Pennsylvania. The restaurant is owned by the DeFabo family who continually pride themselves on providing authentic italian cuisine to their undeniably loyal customers. I started working at Rizzo’s in the summer of 2016. I primarily work as a take-out waitress, but have also been cross-trained as a hostess, busser and carry-out employee. I plan to continue working at Rizzo’s until I graduate college and receive new employment pertaining to my degree.
I enjoy being there for my grandmother and cleaning her house or doing some picking up here and there as long as I have her company there while I do the work, I don't mind one bit. It's important to me to have strong family values because I feel it makes me a better person and helps me to never forget where I came from. I remember in middle school I did community service and the feeling you get from knowing that you’re being a small part of helping someone in need is a satisfying feeling. I went to Feed the Children to package boxes with everyday necessities. I also have spent some time at the food bank helping packing food for those in need.
Motivation allows for an employee to work harder than he already is. Many employees tend to exhibit their ambition within careers which contain opportunities that grant the advancement to higher platforms. However, despite there being such a low amount of career advancement possibilities at McDonald’s, securing a job at the fast food restaurant did not prevent Marissa Nuñez from gaining and displaying motivation. Rather, obtaining this job sparked her desire to succeed from her first real day; she began her career with an idea to race her cousin, who was also a McDonald’s employee at the time; this race consisted of a goal which was to determine “who could get the most customers and who could fill the orders in fifty-nine seconds” (440). Although, this action was more trivial than not, it sparked Marissa Nuñez’ inspiration to strive without her even knowing.
I 've taken these traits and applied them to my volunteer work at the local food pantry. My mother has inspired me to give back to my community, and always to help my neighbor. What makes volunteering so special to me is that I have such a tremendous impact on someone else’s life by doing something that is so straightforward. Also, as senior class president, I am a leader and is counted upon by many. Mainly, my mother has made me the person I am today.

When we finally moved back to Minnesota after 4 years, this was the first meal I got. In a way, it was history repeating itself because now the hard parts were over and she was making up for them. This food has become a part of my life because it is a go to when times are bad or when I'm sad about something. It is also a food I eat on most special occasions or certain events. Finally, it is a food I always eat with my mom and rarely anything else and holds great meaning to me.
Going through the small double steel door, I saw some of her co-workers. There is not many chefs in the back. There were around 5 people, including her uncle, working and preparing the dish for the customers. Some were Hispanic and the others were Asian. Chen stated that she like to come to the kitchen during her break to talk to the chefs about her day and talk about the annoying customers.
My father was absent in my childhood. Therefore, my mother played both parenting roles. Which made things tough. It was not the best situation, but it has molded, and benefited me in many ways: For starters, it taught me how to survive with a limited supply of food, money, and/or resources, etc. My family was not rich, but as my mother would often say, we were “one paycheck away from being poor.” My sisters and I never went to bed hungry, but I can remember on numerous nights we had to be creative with making dinner to feed our four family household.
In high school I participated in a culinary competition called C-CAP (Careers through Culinary Arts Program), Josh was one of the judges my sophomore, junior, and senior year. He donated his time, expertise and also a scholarship for aspiring culinarians. I have had the opportunity to work with Josh at the Taste of America event put on by the James Beard Foundation. Not only did he teach me a ton in that short night, he also offered me a position in his kitchen staff at Posh. Josh Hebert is inspiring to me because he worked in several restaurants and came to the realization that he loved the industry but couldn’t stand the daily grind.
