Last Wednesday was my last day at my job. He had announced it since last Saturday. My last days at work were very normal: complying with the routine, between laughter and industriousness.
Many of my friends have been surprised by the news. They are surprised that he has abandoned the security of a "safe" weekly income. However, when I explain they understand me and it is because it happens to themselves. I will give that explanation to you here.
Being employed in Venezuela will not prevent you from eating badly. That is a very cruel truth, but it is so. Besides, my job is not easy: it's about being more than 10 hours standing in constant motion, so I just exhausted, I only had one day off and working conditions were somewhat precarious.
I love working in the kitchen and I am good at it. I trust my abilities to get another job very fast. However, I explain to my friends and you (who are also) that I don't work for money, I work to learn, to grow as a cook. That also led me to give up: I was tired of frying chicken.
I learned a lot in my stay at this job: I was in charge of the kitchen, I learned to handle another type of fryer, now I am faster and stronger. I am grateful to the universe for this. And he knows that I want more.
Now with the embargo things will get more difficult in Venezuela, I see no other way out but to leave the country: to be a migrant. I have no hope to stay here. I only find myself training to go to another country and work in the kitchen. I still haven't finished my cooking studies, I'm looking for a way to raise $ 300 to start a business that helps me support my family and continue my cooking studies. If you can help me I will be very grateful. Thank you very much to the entire HonestCash community for your solidarity.
