I am from heaven, from Bangladesh. I came here when I was 19 years old. The first job I had was a food delivery job. I didn’t really like it, but I had no other choice. I couldn’t speak English at the time, so that was the only job I could do. The only benefit I got out of that job was free soda. A friend of mine had offered me this job when I first arrived. But I wasn’t happy being away from school, so I decided to go back to school. That was my dream. It was the reason I had come here in the first place. So I finally went back to school and that’s when I left the food delivery job.
