YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
“Before working at Starbucks, I was not able to talk to any strangers at all. Now, thanks to Starbucks and slowly pushing me out of my comfort zones, I am a different person than I was [three] years ago.
Along with being able to be more extroverted, as I will call it, I’m able to do this outside of work as well.
So I’m able to talk to my classmates, participate more in group projects, make more friends, get out of my room a little bit more. It makes me feel more visible to everyone else, instead of me trying to hide.”
